“This was a pretty good day for us,” Marshfield coach Dawn Sadowska said. “Our goal was to get our middles more involved in our offense and we were able to do that. When we clean up some of our errors, the matches we think we should win, we will. I’m excited to see what this team is going to be able to do as we continue conference play.”
Marshfield plays a nonconference match at Stratford on Thursday.
