Inside the Boxscore

From Head Coach Will Stanton

"We struggled a little today on serve receive in some crucial situations, but we worked harder on our defense and our blocking, so we were able to overcome that issue. Our serving came on stronger later in the match and that made a huge difference. It was good to get a win here and get the weekend started. We look forward to getting back to work tomorrow!"
