QUOTE FROM COACH:

"The defense was solid tonight with our block supported by disciplined floor defense. Despite a breakdown in passing in the second set, our defense was able to keep us in it until we could get a few key kills to put the set away. Kellen Tensen (Sr. New Canaan, Conn.) set a really smart match tonight which gave hitters ample opportunities to score." – Coach Somera
