Laker Coach Heather Koroleski says her squad “pushed through hard and together for a victory over Vassar.”

Laker won 25-19, 25-23, 17-25, and 25-18. Koroleski adds: “One of our key go-to players had to leave early in the first game to due an injury. We had to make some adjustments and have girls step up and play different positions — and they did. One of our strengths is that the girls are all-round great athletes and can play other positions well. We stayed strong and pulled it all together. We communicated, served well, and had a ton of digs tonight. ”
