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.”
