FROM COACH HILTZ
Overall Thoughts: “I'm happy that we took care of business and got two wins today, but I felt that at times it was sloppy. We looked a little tired at times. Hopefully we can rest and regain some energy over spring break and be ready to go for Tuesday's match. Overall though, we are headed home with a winning record from the weekend with our only losses coming to ranked opponents, one of whom we played as close as we could without winning."
From Here: "We are also coming home with a new program record for wins in a season. It's a special accomplishment for this group. I hope we can keep working hard and fight for a possible 20 win season. That would be even more special and would mean we played some really great volleyball down the stretch. I'm looking forward to seeing how we finish this week."
-The Warhawks travel to New Orleans on Tuesday to faceoff against UNO for the third time this season, already owning a pair of victories over the Privateers this year.
