"This three set win on the road was really important for us today. We showed poise and camaraderie during the entirety of our play which gave us confidence in each rotation and match moment. To come back and win set three when we were down 24-21 was also an incredible way to wrap up this match and road trip weekend. After a much needed day of rest tomorrow with fellowship in church we will continue on with our season preparation for Wednesday’s match at Northwestern."
