The varsity volleyball team demolished Cristo Rey 25-12, 25-13, 25-1 on Sept. 18 at Country Day.
In the third set, junior Erin Wilson and senior Jewel Turner served 13 and 12 points, respectively. In the previous two sets, Cristo Rey kept the ball for more than two serves only once.
“It’s hard to play those types of (matches) when you know the other team is not up to your competitive level,” coach Jason Kreps said.
Turner agreed with Kreps.
“Our opponent was a good warmup for Buckingham,” Turner said.
Regarding Country Day’s serving in the third set, Kreps said, “Just placing serves is a valuable thing.”
Turner said she “focused on standing float serves (using an open hand with a high elbow and wrist behind the head and shoulder) and made sure to (serve) strategically.”
The Cavs tallied another win, in five sets, at Buckingham Charter on Sept. 19.
Country Day lost to St. Patrick-St. Vincent of Vallejo 2-0 and Liberty Ranch of Galt 2-1 in the CIVT Invitational on Sept. 21 at the Capital Sports Center, 5209 Luce Ave.
The Cavs’ next match is on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at 6 p.m. against Sacramento Adventist at Country Day.
