LC Coach Mark Tippett: We played very well today and it is a shame we do not have a match win to show for it. Both of our opponents are strong teams who have the potential to represent their Region in the national tournament. We played at a very high level all day which is what every coach wants to see at the end of the season. The difference in both matches were a handful of long volleys that just did not fall our way. I was proud of our effort and very pleased with how far the team has come this year.
