She also praised her team's play, which has improved in recent games.
"We're starting to click as a team, and I'm excited to see how we continue to push ourselves. Our passing kept us on top in most of the matches."
Coleman pointed to the play of sophomore Libero Karly Mathias, who created a lot of scoring opportunities.
"[She] stepped it up, and she made some amazing plays."
