On Monday, Sept. 15 DeQuincy Middle Volleyball team hosted J. I. Watson and right off the bat found ourselves looking up to a much bigger team. As the match unfolded it became more obvious that physical size wasn’t going to determine the outcome. Some great hustle and sound volleyball decisions by our players brought us a 25-14, 25-13 win for a 2-0 start.
Ryley Blackburn and McKenna Lejeune our two starting setters had big nights. Ryley went 4/4 hitting, 2 kills, 11/12 serving, 9 points, 7 aces, 16/19 setting, and 8 assists. McKenna had 3/5 hitting, 16/17 serving, 15 points, 6/10 setting, and 2 assists. Maria Phillips playing middle blocker did well with 4/4 hitting, and 3 kills.
The next match will be Monday, Sept. 29 against LeBlanc at DeQuincy Middle School. It will also be our 8th grade night.
