"Another tough loss for us tonight" said head coach Kurt Godfrey.  "Rock North is an incredibly talented team and it's tough to get them out of system.  Rock's outside Maddy (Moore) is so good and she was on her game tonight.  She is a heck of an athlete.
"We played really well and I am very proud of the way the girls battled back in games one and two, even though we lost.  We were down 16-22 in each set and came back just a little too late.  Allie and Julia had a great night in the middle for us and they blocked really well.  Mckenna and Lindsay both shared the libero spot and each played really smart, tough defense for us.  Alyssa and Kelly, our captains, were so tough for us tonight and left everything out there.  They always seem to be the ones who shine for us in clutch moments.
"We didn't get the win tonight, but I am proud of the way the girls played.  We'll get back to work tomorrow in practice and continue to push for a playoff spot.  I know we all want the chance to prove we belong there!"
