“…Our passing got the best of us in our previous game against Buffalo as well as in our first set against Tolsia. Once we made adjustments and developed consistency on serve receive, we were able to execute our offense and play our game. This team is resilient. They do a great job bouncing back after certain situations and it’s going to help us as we make our run into post season play.”
“… Buffalo played well and is a good defensive team. There wasn’t a lot of holes on the court, which is a testament to their athleticism and ability to move. I’m proud of how we played against them. It was a great fast-paced game and had we adjusted quicker on our serve receive, results could have been different for us.”
“… We played a good athletic Chesapeake team and stayed consistent throughout the entire game with solid passing and serving. I’m proud of how well the team bounced back after a tough loss to Johnson Central. This was a great game where we set the pace.”
