“We wanted to make a big statement tonight in our opening conference match and our team played inspired,” said head coach Bond Shymansky. “It took a little while for our offense to get going, but Lynnette Moster was on fire from the start. The definite defense on the night was our defense. Our back row really stepped it up and made some crucial plays late in each game to shift the momentum in our favor. Lindsey has really accelerated her learning curve and is running our offense like a well-oiled machine.”
