to increase the lead to 13-8. Eventually winning 15-9 in the 5th set.
" The girls played great today, really hung in against Pitt after a tough first set. We could have easily just quit after starting slow, but they battled back started
playing to their strengths. We played tough defense, put up a few blocks and served little tougher. Overall we have had a great start to the season.
We look forward to this week, 5 tough matches this week."
