“I chose Rocky, because of how welcoming everyone was towards me when I came on my visit: the instructors, Coach Yang, and all of the girls!,” Bretz said. “It was everything I was looking for when deciding where to transfer to continue playing. I'm so excited to come to Billings, and become a Battlin' Bear!”
