“A good day in general for the girls. We came out ready to play,” Cass coach Gretchen Crum said. “We used a lot of emotion for the first match so we came in a little slow against Mac. They basically returned the ball to us and waited for us to make the error. Trish and Claire were hitting well, but we needed more offense from others. We will play them better when we see them in a couple of weeks.
“Seeger and Faith Christian were both unable to keep up with the speed of our game and struggled with our serving to them. It was a great chance to let a freshman setter come in and work with us.”
Culver Ac. 3, Winamac 0
The Warriors lost on the road, 25-22, 25-18, 25-17.
Ashley Eichelberger had eight kills and eight digs for Winamac. Bethany Brogdon collected nine digs. Taylor Jones dished 19 assists.
“We just didn’t come ready to play today,” Warrior coach Cathy DeFries said. “We really struggled to play with intensity. Every time we would make a great play we would turn around and make an error. Our hitting percentage just isn’t where we need it to be right now to be effective in games like this one.”
