"We are halfway through our season with a very young team. We plan to work hard to improve and expect to see some different outcomes as we play these teams for the second time this season."
"Our girls have already learned a lot about the sport of volleyball and what it takes to play together as a team, and how to be a good teammate both on the court and off. We are young and already have some big power hitters and some very consistent servers. When it all comes together, our win-loss record will improve dramatically."
This week we host Bridgeport on Tuesday and travel to Pateros on Saturday, October 19.
