“Sporadic serve receive and hitting errors cost us points in every set,” Cass coach Gretchen Crum said. “Not recognizing hitter tendencies hurt in set two. We hung our heads at a point which added to our difficulty with their heavy hitters. We hung around in sets two and three and then made errors which gave Southwood the wins. We’ll be back in the gym tomorrow to work on ways to score.”
The Kings have five home matches coming up, starting with Oak Hill on Thursday.
