Going into the game Monday night the team was told to focus on passing and serving. The team focused well as they came on top top of Manhattan Christian College. They won in three sets with scores of 25-17, 25-22, 26-24.
Coach Donnie Wallace said the key factor was the way they gutted the win out. “Being up by a lot and having MCC come back, yet still being able to pull together and win in the end.”
Blaire Miller, freshman right side hitter said confidence was key in getting the win.
Kaitlynn Munoz, setter sophomore, and Wallace both said defense was done well tonight.
Up next on the Lady Builder schedule is at 7a.m. on Thursday at Sterling. The Lady Warrior team is 9-6 on the year but they are undefeated at home. Munoz said the team needs to click better against Sterling; they need to pick up the passing because better passing leads to better sets which end in the hitters putting the ball away.
Miller said the team needs to work on consistency in the next game.
This weekend the team heads out to Denver, Col. to take on three different teams. “I’m excited to play teams on a higher level than us, it’ll be a good experience,” said Munoz.
