Leesville came for our scrimmage last weekend and we traveling to their’s on Saturday, Aug. 23.
They did not pick up a 3rd team as proposed so our freshmen, JV, and varsity each had one match against the Leesville teams. Our girls showed nice improvement from this last week.
The freshmen won 25-8, 20-4 with solid play by all. Quintazhia Roy and Zaria Anderson were very impressive at middle blocker. Megan Dyer and Abby Cooley worked very well at setter running a good offense.
The JV won 25-16, 16-11 as time ran out. Meagan Hodge did fine as lead off setter and even banged home several jump serves. Charley Lewis was very dependable both on defense and offense.
Our varsity really played well together going 25-18, 10-8 at the end of 30 minute limit. At 16-8 we gave away six straight error points. Darci Bonin has always played defense well and now is adding some strong serving and offense to her game. Lindsay Blanks was at the outside hitter position. We have three talented varsity setters, Haleigh Lorenz, Lauren LeBlanc, and Brenan Marcantel. Hannah Turnage working at libero is maturing fast.
St. Louis hosted for the JV Jamboree (vs. St. Louis) on Monday Aug. 25, and Varsity (vs. Vinton) on Aug. 26.
Our home opener against Iota is Sept. 2 (5 p.m. JV, 6 p.m. V.) at DMS.
On Sept. 4 and 6, we play in the Westlake tournament.
