I just wanted to say thank you so much for all you guys did this season! I wasn't sure if I was going to play before I came to Guelph but I am SO glad I did. I had the best time and it was awesome to have such a great coaching staff there to help us out. Thank you for all the time you spent with us and all the extra things you did for the team, like feeding us every weekend! It was all much apprciated! A lot of your time was given to us and I'm sure I'm not the only one who is very thankful. I am looking forward to next year!
