“We played without one of our middles and another hitter all day today, but we had players step up and we adjusted really well,” said Tiger Head Coach Tricia Schuitema. “We got tired in our last match and weren't able to sustain our energy, but I was really happy with our outcome today.
“We passed the ball well and worked hard defensively. It was a fun day.”
