Quotes from head coach Susan Judge--

?We won and I'm happy about that. We needed a win going into this weekand preparing for Colorado State and Mountain West Conference play. Wedidn't win the match the way I would of liked to. In the first, secondand fourth games, I was pleased with the way we played, but I wasdisappointed in dropping a game to an opponent that we shouldn?t have.That was really my only regret of the match. Once again, Melody Friehaufour go to person comes out and is pretty unstoppable. We're veryfortunate to have people like that step up in our program. We need tohave steadier play from the rest of the team, and we need to be ablecome out each night and have some type of expectation met from the restof the team. Hopefully, we'll get enthusiastic about Colorado State, andI think it should be a great match.?

?I think we relaxed in game three, that's something we have to fightand it's a common thing that happens in volleyball when you get you getup early in matches. I have to give them credit, they made adjustments.They started doing things better, and it wasn't as easy for us. Myspeech after game two was that we needed our challenge ourselvesregardless of what the opponent is doing. I think we didn?t make theadjustments, which was both physical and mental.?
