Coach Tera Stutheit’s Comments
“Our team is playing really well right now, which is what we want headed into the state tourney. We set a goal at the beginning of the year to get the district championship. The team was really up and ready for the match. We had a lot of momentum in the first two sets and played really well. The third set we didn’t pass well and made a few errors but stayed focused to get the win.”
