The JV girls’ volleyball team was defeated, 0-2, by Bradshaw Christian on Oct. 2.
At first, not a lot of fans were at the game, even though it was Spirit Day. But eventually more arrived, including history teacher Bruce Baird and math teacher Patricia Jacobsen.
The score of the first set was 16-25, and the second set was 13-25.
After losing the first set, the girls came back onto the court, fired up to win.
They won the first point of the second set with an ace by freshman co-captain Lia Kaufman but couldn’t keep up the pace throughout the set.
Bradshaw Christian is a Division V school. They came into the game with an overall record of 2-2.
“They’re going to be a tough team,” freshman Heidi Johnson said before the game. “(For us to win) we need to communicate and not let balls drop with no one going for them. And we need to be more aggressive.”
Kaufman attributed the loss to missed serves.
“(The serves) kind of dampened our mood,” she said.
Freshman Tori Van Vleck agreed.
“They were a hard team, and we didn’t get as many three-touch plays and hits,” she added.
The girls’ next game is on Friday, Oct. 16, at Cornerstone Christian at 5 p.m.
Sophomore co-captain Sonja Hansen said that she is worried about the team not being able to practice for a whole week due to class field trips, Oct. 6-9.
“After I really mess up in a game, I just want to go all out in practice or the next game to feel better,” she said. “But now, we can’t for, like, two weeks.”
