Tonight was a battle and I don’t know if I have ever been involved in a match with such long rallies. The scores were close, but the games were even closer than the scores showed. Upper Dublin is a good team with a great coach and I wish them the best for the rest of their season. Megan Manderson had a huge night for us and racked up 20 kills. This matches her season high, and I know how much this match meant to her and all our other seniors. Morgan McCrory was our backbone tonight, as usual, and she dominated our defensive effort all night long. She will certainly wake up with some bruises tomorrow morning from diving all around. Our juniors had a great night for us, too, and it leaves us really excited. We have some amazing talent coming back and our juniors are already excited to see what they are made of for next season. Alyssa Dallmer had a nice night at the net and on defense for us. Julia and Isabel chipped in with five kills each and added a few aces and digs to go along with their kills. We didn’t get the W tonight, but we played relatively well. We made some big mistakes, but we rallied out of some big holes, as well. We will take all the progress we’ve made this season and build on it for next year.”

Megan Manderson, one of our senior co-captains, came up absolutely huge for us and had her biggest night of the season so far. She seemed to be able to put the ball away for us whenever we needed to get out of a jam. All of those kills would not have been possible without our outstanding serve receive and defense tonight. I am so proud of all the girls who passed for us. Megan decided to help herself out a little bit too with 23 digs. Morgan McCrory, our other senior co-captain, continued her absolutely incredible season and ended up with 37 digs for us. That puts her over 600 digs for the season and it’s just awesome to watch her accomplish that tonight. All of our seniors started tonight and every single one of them helped us get the W tonight. Whether it was Kayla, Sydney or Tara at the net for us or if it was Caroline or Jess back row … each one of them stepped up in a moment we needed them. Rock South is a great team and they play defense really well. They seem to move around really well and it made for a drama-filled night. This National conference has been crazy this season and it really truly makes each match that much more important. Hopefully, we will get the opportunity to continue our season in the playoffs.”

This was a game the team had circled on our calendar for a long time and it’s nice to pull out the W. Pennridge is a great team and they make you earn each point you get against them. They are extremely well coached and have some big talent. I thought we served really well and were able to put the pressure on them in serve receive. We were able to move on defense and put the ball away when we needed a big play. Megan, Julia and Alyssa were absolutely on fire tonight at the net. Megan has been amazing for us all season long, Julia has come on so strong in the second half of the season and Alyssa has been our utility player. She (Alyssa) has played almost every position for us at some point and she has handled it all with such poise and confidence. We are lucky to have such a great athlete like her. She was our ‘kills’ leader tonight and it was so nice to see her have such a big night. Isabel Miller also had a strong night for us on defense. I could talk about each player and give you positive things they did to contribute tonight. I am so proud of them and hopefully we can roll this momentum into our Senior Night tomorrow night.”

She’s a freshman and it was her first varsity match. I think she got one of the biggest cheers of the season when she checked into the game tonight.
