I am proud of our girls for continuing to fight through adversity (after the first set, third set and even being down 0-8 in the fifth); our girls never stopped fighting. So far we are achieving our main goal of improving every time we play. We squandered too many opportunities with missed serves but overall, I am pleased with the direction we are heading. Schylar set the ball really well for us tonight. Chelsea led our hitters. Cierra and Maddy had another solid performance.”
