Coach Powell said” tonight was Senior night and what a an awesome way to celebrate our seniors with a much needed win! We played very aggressively and brought everything together as a team. Rachel Schermerhorn had a fantastic match at the net. She played really smart as a hitter attacking the holes in Wawasee's defense. Kelsie Peterson also had a great night with a solid defensive performance leading the team in digs. She also ran the offense well by changing the tempo and using all available hitting options. Consistency and communication were key to this win.” Great teamwork ladies!
