The varsity volleyball team opened up the fourth set on a 8-1 run after losing back-to-back sets to Forest Lake Christian on Tuesday, Sept. 15.
Going into the fourth set, assistant coach Sarah Song told the team what to do in order to improve.
“Sarah told us that we needed to play with more energy,” senior Sydney Michel said. “She told us to think about what we did well in the first set.”
The Cavs had won that first set, 25-22. But they lost the second and third, 25-22 and 25-20.
But they won the fourth set, 25-21, before cruising to victory, 15-8, in the fifth.
The boys’ soccer team accompanied the volleyball team on the 45-mile bus ride to Auburn.
The girls cheered on the boys for the first half of the game before they had to go and warm up for theirs. And the boys returned the favor.
“It was great to have people supporting us at an away game,” sophomore Yasmin Gupta said. “(Forest Lake) had a large crowd, so it was nice to have our crowd to counter them.”
The team next plays Cristo Rey at home on Friday, Sept. 18, at 6 p.m.
The Cavs beat Cristo Rey twice last season, both times 3-0.
“Friday’s game will be a good opportunity to incorporate players that haven’t had a lot of playing time,” coach Jason Kreps said.
