Coastal’s first match of the day against Coker had already been canceled due to snow and ice. “We were lucky to get this match in today,” head coach Catherine Hewitt said. “The courts were covered with ice this morning due to the snow and rain, but the girls performed well today in the conditions and supported each other while on the court.”
The Chants take to the road next week as they travel to Wofford on Friday for 2 p.m. match.
