The Gophers took on the #1 seeded Juniata Eagles and #2 seeded Susquehanna River Hawks to complete Landmark Conference play on Saturday, October 15th, and came away with 3 set losses in both matches by the scores of 25-18, 25-10, 25-13 and 25-18, 25-18 and 25-17. Despite the losses the Gophers earned respect by virtue of their play. So much so that Goucher’s Head Coach, Kait Kozak, made this observation: “I am very pleased with the way we played against two very strong opponents. Our effort and mental toughness was at its best. We continue to see improvements from all players, and that is an indicator that we are doing things right in the practice gym.”
The Gophers continue non-conference play on Wednesday, October 19th , when they travel to play at York College.
