I was very pleased. With only four days of official practice, I was happy with how they pulled it together.Truckee junior Katie Reiswig was named to the all-tournament team, which is recognized by the scorekeepers and officials and is awarded to one player from each team, Annaloro said.Because the tournament was the first of the year for the Wolverines, there were no stats taken.
