"With the Jack Pack, we're looking to create student unity," Lesley Koza, the vice president of the Student Athletic Board. "Coach Jack brings so much energy to the game. The women's basketball games are extremely exciting and we hope to add to that excitement with our very own student section. We're creating and implementing new traditions this year, and we hope the students will embrace the changes and support the team!"
