"We need to work on our hitting efficiency," coach Melissa Huseth said. "We have a variety of tempos in our attack and just need to be more consistent. We have a very balanced team, and each girl has a gift that benefits their team, and they know that each of them is necessary to accomplish their goals. We will be focusing on our serving and passing this season."
The squad was a Byron Tuesday night. They host Zumbrota-Mazeppa Thursday and Hayfield on Tuesday, Sept. 10.
