“We came out focused and ready to play,” said coach Jaime Keiser. “We played pretty consistent most of the day. I was proud of how the girls showed intensity and how we jelled together as a team. All day we did a great job of attacking the ball which kept our opponent on the defensive end,” said the coach.
Keiser added: “In the championship match we came out ready to play and had the momentum most of the match. We did a great job of serving and attacking Dakota Valley and got them out of system. Dakota Valley is a good team and had some good hitters. It was a fun day with a great team effort,”
