COACHES CORNER Tonight is another tough AAC match as we face Milligan College who was the preseason conference favorite. In our earlier meeting we played with them up until the the 15 point range but struggled with mental errors and Milligan was always able to pull away. We will focus on slowing down their middle attackers and believe that is our best chance to win tonight. We see continued improvement from our middle hitter’s in Angi Highlander and Megan Randall and will be counting on them for some huge defense tonight. I also wish to congratulate Yeda Duarte as she is quickly approaching the 2000 career digs milestone and may achieve that feat tonight.
