While the seventh-grade team defeated their opponent in two games, 25-19 and 25-18, the eighth-grade Lady Raiders team fell to the Lady Red Raiders in game three, 13-15, after dropping game one 12-25 and winning game two 25-19.
According to seventh-grade coach Patricia Flowers, Nicole Glaser, Anna Renshaw, Sydney Geren and libero Lydia Martin stood out in Monday’s match.
Glaser had four aces, three digs and three kills, while Renshaw had two aces, two digs and five kills.
Geren had three aces, two digs and two kills, with Martin getting eight digs and one kill.
Overall, the team had 14 aces, 18 digs and 14 kills.
“They played great and were fun to coach. Everyone played a role in the win,” Flowers said.
Unfortunately the eighth-grade team was not able to start its season out with a win, after struggling to put things together.
“The girls started flat and couldn’t seem to put it all together, but in game two they stepped up their game and pulled out a solid win,” Coach Brandi Ownby said. “We struggled in set three to put the game away with missed serves at crucial moments in the game.”
Sophia Lakatosh had three aces, five digs and one kill, with Rheagan Hall getting one ace, three digs and a kill of her own.
Katie Davis had five digs and two kills, while Emma Flowers had one ace, seven digs and three kills.
Katelyn Hanshew had three aces and four digs and Hannah Longley had one ace and three digs.
Overall, the team had a total of 11 aces, 28 digs and eight kills.
Both teams will be back in action Thursday, when they travel to Spring City.
