“We played well the first two games and next thing I knew we were down 9-2 in game 3, We need to put together a complete game and win one of these.” Coach Jim Cushion said after the game. “Tyrone continues to get quality play from the back row with Kristen Fry, Chelsie Santoni, and Kim Fink, Also Suzanne Zimmerman is playing into her new role as Libero and contributing as well. At the net the Lady Eagles improve every night with Kristin Gearhart recording four kills and Ariane Miller with three of her own. Kassie Gardner and Jess Thomas each had four assists as setters. Everyone is contributing and getting lots of playing time so we should be further ahead next season.” added Cushion.
