“Our first two sets were pretty good,” said Stanwood head coach Erik Titus. “It was real high energy with not a lot of mistakes. But Everett just stuck with it, they were really consistent. It’s really tough to make a come back like that. It was really impressive.”
Despite the loss coach Titus had a positive outlook on the Spartans play after the first match of the season.
“I think we can improve,” Titus said. “(Everett) put us in a position and forced us to make some errors. There’s a lot of things you can take away from it, to play five sets in your first match is pretty good.”
