FROM THE COACH:
The weekend in Devils Lake has traditionally been hard, physical volleyball against really great competition. This year was no different. We played 4 tough matches that stretched us and definitely showed us a lot about ourselves. One of the characteristics of our team from day 1 has been that we control the outcome almost every time we step out on the floor. For the most part, we haven’t played consistently enough which results in teams capitalizing on our mistakes and us giving points, sets, and matches away. This was evident in our 3 losses this past weekend and even in the match we did win. We were up 2 sets to 0 before taking our foot off the gas and giving up the next 2 sets. We were able to find our game that we had early on and pull out the victory. If we can play like we did in those 3 sets all the time, our record would look a lot different. In all of that, I am still very confident in our team and the skill that we have. We certainly haven’t peaked yet and I will look for that as we head into our Regional championships in 2 weeks.

PLAYER’S VIEW:
Ally Grafe (Junior, Libero): “This weekend was another reminder that when we play consistently through a match, results end up in our favour and our big win was a testament to that. This also showed we need to continue to work hard so that we can see more results like that going forward!”
