And it’s the least I’ve ever cared about that many errors. So good just to get back to playing in blue and silver. This is a great group of guys, with a ton of experience, and they’ll be fine once we get a few more matches played. Jack McDonald led the way, and that’s not surprising. He’s been on the varsity since his freshman year. But the strength of the team has to be getting kills from every position. We have the guys to do it, so we’ve got to get everyone connecting.”
