Outlook: Though they did not have the worst record in the UCBAC last season, the 2013 Rams have little place to go but up after wrapping up 2012 with a 3-14 mark. "We have a great group of girls this year," head coach Megan Meinert said. "We are looking to improve on last year's record, and continue to grow as a program."
