Humber made some runs and had the lead late in the second and third sets but we were not consumed with the outcome. Our serving game gave us some trouble today but we played our toughest when we needed to and we were able to close out some tight sets. This was a great learning moment for our young team and hopefully this match can act as a foundation for the rest of our semester.”
