“For the first outdoor match of the season, I was very pleased,” said head coach Nils Schyllander. “We fought our tails off, and it was a really solid battle. My hat goes off to Corpus Christi. They were very well coached and one of the hardest fighting teams I’ve ever seen. They really made us earn every single point out there.”
