Girls volleyball team was defeated by Blue Valley North Tuesday, Oct. 8. They had high spirits and worked together in the first set winning 25-22. 

The spirit was high and they were on their game in the first set, according to Sophomore Brylee Peterson.

“We had a lot of energy that set, and we just worked together well. We scored our points but didn’t let it continue throughout,” Peterson said.

They lost momentum in the second set with a close score of 25-21, which cost them the game. 

Peterson believed that the lack of communication and teamwork affected the outcome of the game.

“We weren’t communicating well or working together as a team,” Peterson said. “We had no energy.”

Each set came neck and neck. Both teams defended the net religiously, spiking the ball into the opposing teams’ faces and blocking the next, but Blue Valley North won the third set with the final score of 25-21, as well as the fourth, 25-16.

According to freshman Madeline Schnepf, for future games they need to work on teamwork. The girls have another tournament Saturday, Oct. 12, and Schnepf thinks they will do well. 

“I am looking forward to the tournament this weekend because were going to play well. We’re going to work on going for everything and [hitting] the deep shots,” Schnepf said.
