'We had an OK week. I was hoping we would produce a better result against Ike,' coach Kosta Zervas said. 'They have a very nice team, top to bottom. I thought we would be able to compete with them, especially at the double spots. We had opportunities in many of the first sets but lost confidence as the match progressed. Hopefully we'll be able to make some adjustments and be ready for the conference tournament this week.'

'Cudahy was a tough one to gauge,' Zervas said. 'It's hard to see how well we're playing when your opponents are struggling. Often times, players can play down to the level of their opponents. Thankfully that didn't happen against Cudahy. We were able to take care of business and come away confident with our result.
