FROM THE COACH:
Going into Regionals, regardless of our record and seeing, I felt confident in our group that we could make a run to the championship. Our first match was a bit of a wake up call. Right from the start of the tournament we had to battle and we weren’t ready to do that in the first set that we ended up losing. We managed to pull things together and take control of the match winning the next 3 sets. This set up another meeting with our Region rival, Maranatha in the semi-final. The first set was over before we knew it. They capitalized on our mistakes and put us in tough positions right from the start. Again, we managed to turn things around in the 2nd and went point for point with them for most of the set. Maranatha pulled ahead at the end and took the set from us. If we had pulled that set out, I feel that match would have been a different story. They took the momentum and beat us in straight sets to end our hopes of going to Nationals. I am so proud of this team through all of this. Their character showed through the tough loss. They kept their heads high and are able to look forward. We will regroup and head into the MCAC season looking to get better and compete at the highest level that we can.

PLAYER’S VIEW:
Katy Warkentine: “It was a tough battle this weekend. Although we were obviously hoping for different results, we have to keep looking forward. It’s hard to lose, but with our whole MCAC season in front of us, it’s important to keep working to become the best we can be, and results will come with that.”
