“This game gave us time to work on our confidence in our positions and work on a few things, especially with our youngest players,” Medina said. “We still have lots to learn, but I’m hoping this win will give my girls more confidence in themselves.”
Passing was Mabton’s struggle last year. It appears a year of experience has helped
“They’re all passing fairly well, with Karina and Mercedes as our leading passers,” Medina said. “We had a good serving game. I expect the girls to serve their best and attack as much as possible in any situation, and this game they did just that.”
