Outside backer Hailey Berg said the Pirates, now ranked No. 2 in the NWAACC behind Walla Walla, are strong thanks to the team's focus and hard work.
"We mostly focus on what we have to do (not on the other team)," Berg said. "Especially lately — we've been leaning how to be tougher."
"We have good team speed. We're athletic and deep. Some of our opponents drop off a little bit (with substitutions)," Anderson said.
"The pressure was on Highline to come in and beat us," he said.
