Coach Beiler commented, "In comparison to our first tournament last weekend and even our match Friday night, the ladies did a complete 180 offensively and really started to make the corrections we have been talking about. They knew they didn't want to continue on the losing streak we were on, and that definitely lit a fire under them to play strong and individually do their jobs, whether that was passing, hitting, blocking, setting—everyone improved during Saturday's matches and that was really great to see and fun to watch. They had great energy, and even when they were down a few points, they found a way to dig themselves out of that hole and not give up. We are geared up for a big week with games on Tuesday, Thursday, and a tri-March Saturday! Come out and show your support this Thursday for our first home match of the season at 7pm vs Bryn athyn!"
