Joe Getzin spoke with members of the media Monday afternoon.
Sept. 16, 2013
Opening statement... "We had a good weekend this weekend at TCU. We went 3-1, losing our final match of the weekend to TCU in five sets. Overall I was very, very pleased with the weekend. We ended up playing 14 sets. In 12 of those sets the opponent didn’t even score 20 points. We did some really good things. Unfortunately, TCU made an adjustment with an athlete we didn’t have an answer for. That was the difference in the match for us. Overall I was very pleased with the weekend.
"Last time I stood up here, I said if we can continue to improve from week to week, it would speak volumes for the future of the program. We did just that. We increased our hitting percentage and went up another 100 points in hitting. I’m really pleased with the progress the kids are making as we go. We’re still very young and sometimes that shows. Overall, they’re playing with maturity way past their years. It’s exciting.
"We host our second tournament of the year (this weekend). We haven’t done that in quite some time. We’re looking forward to being back at home for the next couple of weeks. What that allows us to do is get a little more training time in. It allows us to work on some things as we go forward."
On what to expect moving forward... "Offensively, we’ve got to continue to work on producing better numbers and getting more kills per swing. We got one of our defensive specialists back last weekend, and she really helped us stay in position where we had three attackers more often, thus the higher hitting percentage. Our kills per set should be a little bit higher.
"We have different styles of teams (in the Rebel Classic this weekend), a little bit scrappier than what we face in the SEC. That’s always a point where you have to stay patient. That helps build long term for us."
On Kara Morgan... "Kara had surgery for a slap tear in her labrum in March. While she’s cleared to play, I think she’s up to about 90 percent. It just keeps getting stronger and stronger. Kara has found ways to get things done. It isn’t just power kills anymore. She’s blocking a little bit better. She continues to improve and get better strength."
