“This has been a busy week for us heading into our tournament this weekend. In the past three days we’ve competed in 15 sets of volleyball and the girls continued to compete today. Molly Adler was impressive tonight playing middle for the first time and carried us in our win against Harper Creek. We had some great kills from our hitters tonight and setter Paige Crull played the best I’ve seen her this season. I was proud of us defensively at times but we still have work to do and will continue to improve. We look forward to competing this weekend in Lakewood.” Coach Taylor Sundell
