“We communicate well - we really talk on and off the court, we get along so well and our bench did a good job cheering on our teammates.”

Ropati attributed her team’s undefeated status to how their closeness on and off the court.

“I’d say our bond is what will help us stay undefeated and we all really want to get a medal.”
