In commenting about the game at Orion, Coach Komel said, “Tonight was a battle at all levels. You could feel the intensity with every point of every match. We struggled in the first set with our passing which eliminated some of our options on offense.”

She said Orion did “a great job of using a fast and aggressive offense. After the second set, where we went so may extra points we knew we needed to give it our all and I think we did a nice job of finding our control and being able to utilize more of our offense.”
