Hey there Lion fans!
Your Lady Lions had some grinding matches this past weekend at home. We had two conference matches against University of San Francisco and Santa Clara. We had a good match against San Francisco and took the W, but we had a tough loss to Santa Clara. It was hard taking that loss after having a good win the day before. It came down to two matches in singles and just did not pull it out. We were pretty discouraged as a team after that loss because we really felt we have been working hard lately. It was one of those matches we really felt we could have pulled out if we just competed a little harder. The good thing about this match is that we learned a lot from it and we are motivated than ever for our last few conferences matches we have coming up. After a loss, we always try to focus on what went wrong and how we can do better. Although we get discouraged, we try to always use it as a learning experience because that is what the good players do and how they get better. We have been working hard ever since the match and we are always looking to get better every day. Something I really admire about this squad is how motivated everyone gets after a tough loss. I can always see how everyone wants to get better and compete even harder in the next match and it's a really great team trait to have.
Our conference matches continue this week with our last two away matches of the season. We begin this Thursday against University of San Diego then we fly out to Utah this weekend to take on BYU on Saturday. We're excited for these next two away matches because now we're more motivated than ever and I can't wait to compete with them this week.
