QUOTES FROM COACH SCHMID
“We played a good William and Mary team today. I thought we competed well, we’re just short on some key points that would turn the sets and matches in our favor. That is what we are here for, to play good teams and learn. I am looking forward to getting back out to compete tomorrow.”
The Hawkeyes are back in action at 1 p.m. (CT) Saturday against Old Dominion at the Tribe Invite. Results will be posted at hawkeyesports.com.
