Coach Corey's Analysis

MDI faced an always tough WA squad tonight and came away with their 5th win.  The girls played much better tonight; passing and serving were much improved.  We are attacking the ball more and still have work to do, but it’s getting there.  We need to keep pushing in transition and converting out of system plays into kills.  We face our toughest challenge so far this season on Friday, when we face Greely on the road.  That will be a real test for us and we have a lot of work to do before then.
