The girls' varsity volleyball team prepares to receive the ball.

Junior Aidan Galati injured as girls beat Faith Christian for second time

Once again, the varsity volleyball team beat Faith Christian on Oct. 30, this time in straight sets.

In the first set, the Lions had a few good serving runs, but were defeated by SCDS. The Cavs won, 25-22.

In the second set, the Cavs won, 25-19.

In the final set, the Cavs quickly took the victory, 25-8.

Junior Aidan Galati was injured at the very end of the second set and again in the third set. Junior Sydney Michel and Galati had jumped to hit the ball. Michel landed on Galati and hit her nose. Galati moved on and continued playing, but her nose looked bruised.

In the third set, junior Jenny Kerbs also hit Galati’s nose while coming down after a hit. Kerbs let out a scream when she made contact with Galati’s nose. Galati was taken out of the match, but stayed and watched her teammates. After the match, Galati was sent to the emergency room.

“I winced the second time I saw it,” freshman Kyra Petersen said. “I knew what was going to happen next. Everyone was trying to be careful, but obviously volleyball can be a physical sport with so many players on the court.”

“My first thought was I hope she (Galati) gets better,” freshman Annya Dahmani said. “We have playoffs soon and she’s very important to the team.”

The Cavs said they didn’t play to the best of their abilities.

“We were all really tired today,” Petersen said. “Our energy was pretty low.”

The girls previously played the Lions on Oct. 7 and won, 3-1.

The girls’ last match before their first round of playoffs will be away against Sacramento Adventist at 6 p.m. on  Tuesday, Nov. 4.
