"Honestly, it lacked a bit of that intensity, which is something we worked on throughout the match," said Katelyn Sallee, Highlands Head Coach. "We work a lot on creating energy not just waiting for it to show up. I think that helped us pull out of some ruts. We still have some stuff to work on. I didn't like that we pulled it five. We need to seal the deal a bit sooner."
