“Our girls played really well tonight, as they came together making adjustments quickly during the first set. We served really well during the first set and our communication, movement, and positioning towards the ball was better during the second set. Overall, I was really pleased with how we played, but we have to get better before Thursday against PC as well as next Tuesday as our regular season ends with Ben Franklin at home,” said coach Reagan Cannon.
