Lobo Fans!!!

First of all I would like to thank all the friends and family who made the trip to TCU to watch our last Mountain West Conference match. It means so much to us to have a great fan base everywhere we go. This past weekend, as many of you know, did not turn out the way we wanted it to. Although we suffered a hard loss to TCU on Friday, we are now focused on our New Orleans trip.

Our TCU match was hard fought for five games. It was a really fun match and we came out firing. Our senior captain, Rose Morris was definitely leading by example. She ended the five-game match with 21 kills. This was a career high for Rose!! Jade Michaelsen had 61 assists which put her over the 3,000 mark for her career and Lisa Meeter racked up 21 digs on the night. Like I said before, we came out firing in the first and second game and went into the halftime with a 2-0 lead. After halftime we lost the next 3 games. Losing the match 2-3. We played really hard but couldn't come out with a W.

Starting out a new week we are extremely focused and ready to head to New Orleans. It's our last regular season game and we want to make it a good one. After this match we are looking for a bid into the NCAA tournament. We will find out on Sunday whether or not we made it.

On a last note, I would like to congratulate Jade Michaelsen, Rose Morris, and Taylor Hadfield for the great accomplishment of being selected to the All-Mountain West Conference team!!!

We would like to wish everyone a SAFE and HAPPY holiday weekend and again thank you for all your support throughout our season!!!

Everyone's a Lobo. WOOF! WOOF! WOOF!
