Saturday evening the La- dy Charger wrapped up the weeks games suffering a loss to Mount Vernon with a score of 17-25, 10 -25, 11-25. Coach Shedd summed up the game and the week by stat- ing, "We had a rough game. Mt. Vernon had all-around great hitting and we couldn't quite get our hand on the ball to block or slow it down. Our back row passers did a great job of serve receiving and get- ting their passes to the setter. They were a tough team, but didn't play mentally strong in the second and third sets." "We are preparing to get back after it next week. We want to continue to improve and learn from our mistakes."
