Volleyball was defeated by Blue Valley and St. James on Tuesday, Sept. 25. The team lost to Blue Valley 20-25 in the first set and 21-25 in the second set. Later that night, the jaguars fell to St. James as well, losing both sets 10-25.

Freshman Amara Traiger felt that the team was not confident, affecting their performance as a team.

“I think we already felt defeated whenever we came in to play,” Traiger said. “I feel like we already thought we were gonna lose, but we need to have more energy and fight.”

St. James and Blue Valley were tough teams to go up against, according to Traiger. 

“These teams were a lot more difficult than the other teams we’ve played, because St. James just won the state championship [in 2017],” Traiger said. “they just take [the sport] very seriously.”

According to freshman Brylee Peterson, the team didn’t perform as strongly as they are usually able to.

“We kind of just fell apart as a team [tonight], and we didn’t execute as we should,” Peterson said.

Peterson felt that St. James and Blue Valley were very advanced compared to the Jaguars’ other competition.

“These teams were very good and a way higher level than the other teams we’ve been playing this season,” Peterson said.

Traiger felt the team’s performance could use some improvement.

“I think we could have done a lot better,” Traiger said. “We had some struggles, and I think we should get back in the gym and keep working at it.” 

The volleyball team will compete again on Thursday, Sept. 27 at Ottawa High School.
