Ss. Peter & Paul coach Dina Herzog said the girls started a bit sluggish in the A team match. “Balls dropped and we had errors,” Herzog said. “They played together at the end of Game 1 and Game 2 was very good.

In the B-team match, Herzog said the girls played each point competitively all night. “I was very proud to watch these girls improve each day in practice,” Herzog said. “Even though we fell short last night, there are great things to come. We have players who are playing for the first time. They are a very exciting bunch of girls to coach and watch.”
