“We go to this tournament because it offers us a chance to play some of the best competition in the state,” Marshfield coach Dawn Sadowska said. “It gives us an opportunity to see what we need to improve on if our goal is to be able to compete in the state tournament. We learned this weekend that offensively we are pretty solid. Once we are able to improve our serve receive, that offense is only going to get better.”
