Walterboro, SC – After the team's first win of the season against the Cougars of Central Carolina Community College on Wednesday, they hit the road, traveling 230 miles to take on the Indians in Walterboro, South Carolina. The Tiger volleyball team moved to 2-0 on Thursday night, defeating the Indians in straight sets, 25-11, 25-8, 25-12.
"We played a little more aggressive tonight," stated Head Coach, Justin Hoskins. "That led to a few more mistakes, but they are areas that we need to be able to improve on. Hopefully we can continue to play aggressively, but eliminate some of our mistakes moving forward."
