“It was a frustrating night, especially coming off last week,” stated head coach Karla Tweeten. “They’re a scrappy team and they played well. We lost to ourselves, but had some good efforts. Laine is stepping up as a hitter. We missed serves, but not due to aggressiveness. We were beating ourselves, and just need to learn from it and play better.”
