Comments From SL-O Coach Dan Taylor

This meet against LeMars resembled our first meeting a couple weeks ago, and about every time we've played the last few years, in that our teams were once again very evenly matched and it came down to the wire. I can't remember a meet we have ever played that 7 out of the 9 matches had split sets and were decided by super-tiebreakers. We worked on those a lot this past week, and the work seems to have paid off, as we won 5 of those 7 match tiebreaks. Both teams had come from behind wins, so it definitely could have gone either way. But I am very pleased with how it came out, and very happy with how our guys hustled and chased shots down.
