Holloway also said he was pleased with the serving of Madison Snyder, Kayla Martin, Kristin Wilson and Kayla Bair. He felt the placement of their serves was crucial to his team’s success.
The Argylls' coach also gave props to freshman setter Kenzie Stitt and her play of late.
Pendleton Heights coach Stefanie Ammirata said the biggest difference between the Arabians' win over Madison-Grant and Saturday’s loss was a lack of discipline by her team.
“I think some of my players just weren’t making the adjustments we asked them to,” she said. “We knew what was coming, and some of them just weren’t disciplined enough to make those adjustments that were necessary. You (can) tell a team they lost last time to us so they want to win. We will have to want to win more. Sometimes it just doesn’t register.”
Ammirata said the Arabians have a rough couple weeks ahead of them with ranked opponents, and she is hoping this loss will motivate her team going forward.
