The Lady Tigers keep started out strong in set 1, but couldn’t keep up for the entire match. The Tigers lost to Mount Mary College in 3 sets; 16-25, 12-25, 12-25. The Tigers came out in game one with a lot of energy and intensity and were playing point to point with Mount Mary. After getting a string of points Mount Mary was able to take a lead and finish the game. Slow starts in both set 2 and 3 caused the Tigers to not be able to take the lead.
“Starting out slow in both sets 2 and 3 really hurt us and we weren’t able to come back from that. We let Mount Mary get runs of 5-6 points and it was too big of a deficit for us to come back. I was proud of the team for fighting till the end of the match. They did a good job of working hard and coming together after being down by so many points in the beginning of the 2nd and 3rd sets.” –Marcie Masselink, Head Women’s Volleyball Coach
