Quotes from head coach Susan Judge

?Our performance was really unfortunate tonight. We looked like we wereready to play in the first game, Melody was hitting the ball well and wewere getting the ball to her. Unfortunately we just weren't playing withenough aggressiveness and confidence, and these young kids are going tohave to get over their fear of being young and inexperienced. There isno team in the conference that we can?t play without being aggressiveand still beat. It's important that we learn that here in the last partof the season, I think the kids understand it comes down to playing thatway in a match. Hopefully that's a goal they have set for the rest ofthe season. A key is that we recover from this loss and get ready forAir Force, because they will be pumped up and ready to play.?
