All of the coaches described the highlights.

Lori Kuemerle said, “The highlights of the game were the girls were hitting very well. They were on the net and they were transitioning correctly and they made all of their serves.”

Coach Lee White said, “Running their plays. We practice about running plays, and they tried it. I just wish they would do a little more of it, but other than that it was a tough game, a tough battle they just have to learn how to get together as a team.”

Varsity coach Kari Thompson said, “It was a super strong start for us, I was very happy with the first two games, we were kind of on a role. We have had two tough games back to back, with Kingman Academy and Lee Williams, which we have had trouble with in the past and even if we get a little rattled and it gets a little close, it’s nice to really pull out a win and kind of really stick with it, because that is what is going to build our team as the rest of the season finishes up.”
