After a close 25-18 first set victory over Robinson, Steinbrenner pulled away 25-15, and 25-10 to close out their fourth win of the season.
“We changed our defense a lot more, instead of having the responsibilty of just playing in the back row, it’s now rellying on our wings on the front row. They contributed a lot on the defensive part,” said head coach Laura Stegenga.
According to Stegenga, the best defensive player for the Warriors was senior Natalia Campos, who had 16 digs with only 3 digging errors; she played “out of her mind” and really contributed to the victory.
“We were all really feeling it and it’s definitely a good win. It’s really nice to get out there and just do what we do best,” said Campos “We’ve always had really high expectations and we have great chemistry so [the game] flows well for us.”
The warriors are now 4-0 heading into a tournament filled Friday and Saturday at the East Coast Challenge and the East Coast Invitational. In both, Steinbrenner will encounter a top 100 team in the state of Florida, which they have not played so far this year.
“Our goal is definitely states, its a pretty high goal but I really think we can accomplish this year,” said Campos.
