"We had two tough opponents to start
the season, and I was pleased with the way we responded," said LC
volleyball coach Mark Tippett. "Defensively, we played a solid match
and we were aggressive on offense. Some service errors let a couple
of games slip away, but hopefully, we got that out of our system.
Last season we had a tough time winning a fifth and deciding game.
It is a very positive sign to pick up two wins in such games early
in the year."
