“Our serve receive looked a lot better, and in turn we had less hitting errors and a balanced attack. We made some errors, but the girls are starting to play to win and fight through adversity. We started to respond, and instead of shutting down we fought back harder,” Brown said, “I feel like we are getting more consistent all the way around. Our defense and serve receive have come a long way, and we are making less unforced errors. We still have a lot of work and learning to do, but I feel that we had a good week and the girls took steps in the right direction.”
