The Tigers started out very strong against Indiana University Northwest, but struggling with serve receive in sets 2,3, and 4 caused them to lose the match. The Tigers lost; 25-17, 21-25, 13-25, 13-25. The Tigers played very well together and defensively the first set. They were able to keep a lot of balls in play which allowed for their opponents to make mistakes. The roles reversed after that first set. In sets 2,3, and 4 the Tigers were making errors that they don’t normally make and were not able to get a good pass to the setter.
“The first set we were passing aggressively and doing very well, after that we really struggled passing and had a lot of serve receive errors which made it difficult for us to set up our offense.” –Marcie Masselink, Head Women’s Volleyball Coach
