Maddie Strzelczyk continued to have a solid tournament registering 19 more assists and 2 aces. McKynna Moxley also registered 2 aces.

When asked about the day Coach McDaniel complemented the progress that has been made since day one of camp. “Our girls were able to show up today after a long practice on Thursday night that focused on our team dynamic. When we walked in the gym today, I knew that the girls were starting to get more comfortable with each other. In both matches that we played today our energy was through the roof. I’m so proud of how they’re forming and growing as a team.”
