The varsity volleyball team beat Sacramento Adventist, 3-0, in only an hour on Oct. 9.
The girls played at home instead of Sac Adventist due to a scheduling change.
“This is the type of team that will keep balls in even if it’s a bad play,” junior middle blocker Sydney Michel said before the game. “We have to be prepared for some messy balls.”
During warm-up, the bleachers were empty, but when the match started, several parents and students came in.
In the beginning of the first game, SCDS was behind by a few points, but eventually caught up and won, 25-16.
SCDS had a small lead for the majority of the second game. The match became very fast-paced and intense toward the end. Sac Adventist lived up to its reputation of returning every ball and had a small advantage over SCDS for a while. But the SCDS players were able to make a quick comeback to win, 25-23. Back-row players on both teams dove for the ball many times.
Sac Adventist went into a decline during the first part of the final game, allowing SCDS to go on a winning streak. Sac Adventist was able to break SCDS’s streak momentarily, but was unable to win.
SCDS won, 25-16.
The girls will play Sac Adventist again in early November.
The girls’ next game will be away at Cristo Rey at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 14.
