The Lady Tigers started out strong in their first match of the season against Mount Mary College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The match started out going back and forth point for point between the two teams. The tigers caught themselves in a bad rotation and couldn’t get out of the slump they got themselves into. The Tigers ended up losing the match 11-25, 11-25, 10-25. “I was really proud of how the girls started out for it being the first match of the season. I would not like to see them carry their momentum and energy throughout the entire match. We defiantly have a lot of areas that we need to improve on and continue to work on, but I look forward to playing Mount Mary again next week on our home court.” Coach Masselink, Head Women’s Volleyball Coach
