At a home game, Southern’s volleyball team lost to Concordia University 0-3 on Monday.

As the difficulties of finding team dynamics became transparent, the Owls never really were able to find a rhythm. The game was difficult for the young team as they struggled to find their footing and keep consistent pressure on Concordia. The consensus from both players and coach alike was that the team needed to perform better and connect with one another.

Head Coach Lisa Barbaro stressed that for the future, the team should focus on moving forward.

“It’s a very young group and they have a long way to go to get to the point I think they want to be and I want them to be,” said Barbaro. “We’re just going to keep practicing and keep pushing ahead.”

After the disappointing game, the Owls will have to brush off the loss and come back to play Holy Family University at home 7 p.m. this Friday.
