Head coach Jamie Morrison on today’s match …
“Tennessee is a really good volleyball team. I thought we played good for stretches, but Tennessee really dialed it in on defense which made it hard for us to put kills down.”
Morrison on the impact of the senior class …
“When you take over a program you need people to buy in to the culture and these girls have done just that. These two mean so much to this team and to the coaching staff. I’m hopeful that we will get one of them back [Lauren Hogan] next year but we are going to miss Caroline [Meuth] a lot. She’s [Meuth] turned into an all-around volleyball player and I am excited to continue to prepare her for the next level.”
