Head Coach Robin Davis On...

Their performance against Morgan State...

"We felt Morgan state was a good opponent for us the first round. We obviously had some girls that played really well, Arlee with 18 kills and Sadie Maughan hitting .500 was great help. During the match, a lot of people got to play and we ended strong at the end of all three of the games, so we’re pleased with our effort."

Their performance against No. 8 Washington...

"The story of the match was Sadie Maughan, who had two really big blocks for us and hit .333 as a freshman middle against the No.8 team in the country. In addition to Muaghan, Jeanene Rose played liebro in that match and did a really nice job for us. "

Their upcoming match against Gonzaga...

"Looking at Gonzaga, all six starters are back from last year. They played Washington a little stronger than we did and they’re much improved so we’re excited to take a shot at them this afternoon. "
