COACHES CORNER

"Today we struggled to come out quick against a good Mount Union team," said Wilmington head coach Tim O'Brien. "As the match progressed, we continued to get better with both our blocking and attacking leading the way. Both Taylor (McCuiston) and Ariel (Goforth) did well mixing up their attacks. Hannah Salyers and Morgan Loomis did a great job in the middle slowing down their attackers as well."

Wilmington (4-19 overall, 0-7 OAC) returns home 7 p.m. Tuesday to face Muskingum.
