“After the first set our blocking started to struggle and we weren’t getting the touches that we got during the first set. Our defense had a hard time against their attackers since we weren’t getting touches to slow down the ball. I thought that our team did a lot of great things throughout the entire match, there were just a few runs in there that made it hard for us to comeback from.”- Marcie Masselink, Head Women’s Volleyball Coach.
