WOLVES QUOTES

“Today was about giving athletes who hadn’t competed for the past few weeks the opportunity to get back into the competitive environment and see where they are with their fitness. Some have come out of the day knowing they were on track for some quality performances over the next few weeks, but some realize they still have work to do to get back to their competitive best,” said the head coach Andrew Ronan.
