I attended the match last night and noticed a few things. Obviously number one is our continual team grit. We have had many matches where we look dead in the water in the first set or two, which happened again last night. Played very listless volleyball in set one and two. Then all of the sudden you could see everything change. A few triple blocks and we were motivated again. Many times this year our youth has shown in a match and usually we "wake up" in time to stage a good comeback and in this case the biggest win of the year. As our young players mature and age in the next 3 years we should be just totally dominant like in 2018 and 2019. Major props to coach Knipe to start the 3rd set with Torwie serving which gave us a quick 5-1 lead and turned the match around. He is such a great coach!!
