Quotes from head coach Susan Judge

"Obviously, the outcome for the Cowgirls was not a positive one, but Iwas proud of them, the way they came back in the third game, and stillmade an effort to play good volleyball. I think the theme for our seasonwas no different in the match tonight. We have a lot of young kids thatare talented and need some experience, and hopefully this has been theirtraining ground and next year will provide different results for ourteam. The first two games were disappointing, because we didn't come outwith aggressiveness and couldn't get our serve/receive underway to getour offense going."
