Sophomore Anna Frankel returns a serve in the second set.

 

The girls’ JV volleyball team was off to a strong start in their first set against the Forest Lake Christian Falcons on Aug. 31.

The girls were up 17-7 and looked poised for an easy victory.

Unfortunately, this did not come to fruition, as the Falcons went on a seven-point run en route to a 21-25 victory.

Sophomore Naomi Turnbull attributed the first set loss to the team’s lack of communication.

“We really need to work on knowing our rotation and communicating,” Turnbull said.

The team started the second set slowly, falling behind, 1-13 to start off.

Coach Sarah Song said it was merely the Falcons’ turn to go on a run.

“I believe volleyball is a game of momentum,” Song said. “In the first set we went on a run and then they went on a run, and that carried over into the second set.”

But the Cavs got on a run of their own, eventually coming within one point of the Falcons, before losing 17-25.

Turnbull said that the girls need to work on their passing.

“We need to work on calling the ball and then executing our passes,” Turnbull said.

Song agreed, saying,” We need to get under our passes, and that is just a result of having quicker footwork.”

Their next game is Wednesday, Sept. 6, against Mira Loma High School at home, at  6 p.m.
