COACH KATIE DEWITT-SEVERSON
“We started out slow from the get-go. Hastings is a team that plays extremely hard every single possession from start to finish and we didn’t match their intensity. We know this is far from what we are capable but our lack of consistency is concerning. We had a great few practices leading up to the weekend and we need to figure out how to carry over that focus into game situations.”
