Megan Brooks did a great job setting tonight and led our defense. Hayley Layton had a good all around game. We really improved our blocking in this match. We are starting to pay attention to our hitters and the patterns they are running against us. I can see improvements with this team each time we play. I am encouraged by their work ethic and willingness to listen.”
