Head Coach Scott Mattera said, "We were pretty efficient in the first and third game with a bit of a lapse in game two, but all's well that ends well. It was good for us to get Rebekah Bustamante (FR/Laredo, Texas) some run at setter, and she did pretty well as a freshman getting her first extended action. Cassidy Haller (SO/Cibolo, Texas) had another good match attacking and rounding out. It was a very nice week for her."
