“Our serve receive and communication weren’t there in set 3,” Winamac coach Heather Kasten said in a statement. “When we were able to capitalize on their mistakes, we shot ourselves in the foot with missed serves. We also started to overcompensate for our teammates and quit doing our own jobs. That always causes chaos.”
Kasten also said the team went through a “temporary weekend shutdown” due to positive coronavirus cases.
