Coach Roberts commented after the Bradford game,  "...that Taylor Kirkpatrick did a nice job tonight of spreading the wealth, giving everyone an opportunity to put the ball down.  And Paris Gruber and Caitlyn Meyers  then went on a "Pay it Forward" campaign of their own by taking those sets [from Kirkpatrick] and putting them away in the scoring column." She went on,  "Bradford did a nice job of attacking the ball all night. They have a very athletic young group that is finding it's volleyball prowess."

South heads into a more difficult part of their schedule playing Arcanum at home (ccc),Brookville(swbl),TCN(ccc), and National Trail at home(ccc).  All of these matches should be closely contested.
