"We had several matches that were closer than the scores would indicate, however our girls need more work on staying in the point longer and waiting for the right opportunity to finish," said coach Barb Rickord. "We had some good, competitive matches against Brandon Valley, and perfect weather, so I think the girls had fun playing their last home match. It has been great to be able to play the USD courts. They're a great addition to the USD campus and Vermillion."
