"Claire and Darienne have started in the back for TSC Hurricane and have had many accomplishments, but then you add in Sierra, who has won the National Cup, Bermel who finished second in the nation a year ago and Essler who is a two-time national champion, and you can see how much experience we have coming in to help us defensively," Cussen said. "These five have played at a very high level and are used to winning at that level. They are not flashy, but thy are very good in their roles."
