We still have a very young team, with a lot of freshmen and sophomores out there, and days like today help them grow as players. We were able to get a lot of different players in today and they did great out there, particularly Gesica Ferrar."

In the Panthers' first match of the day, York took the victory in four sets.

York edged the Panthers in set one, 25-23, then the Panthers won tied the match with a win in the second set, 25-22.
