Post-Match Quote – Head Coach Peggy Martin
On the Clark Atlanta match
“Good start to the very long day being able to play all 17 of our athletes and maintain a high standard.  Great opportunity for our depth to carry us.”

On the Savannah State match
“Offensively I thought we were on top of our game. Jessie Fairly did a nice job of distributing the ball.  Our back line defense was also stellar but blocking needs to get better.”

On the Fort Valley State match
“Good finish to the weekend with lots of players getting needed court time!
