Though the JV volleyball team looked forward to playing Ansonia on their own home court, things didn’t exactly go as planned. In set 1 the Lady Hawks started out with some good serves and strong offense, but at 13-13 the visitors took control and never let MV back in the game, taking the set at 13-25. After a short talk between sets, MV came out in set 2 with a tad more energy and traded points with the Tigers. However, there just wasn’t enough team gelling among the Lady Hawks to get them to the finish first as Ansonia took the match at 21-25.
“We had some issues tonight, which I hope the team can get past. It wasn’t the skills, it was the mental game, and the team just didn’t “play as a team” like they have the past few weeks,” noted Coach Longfellow. “I hope this doesn’t last, so they can have a great end to their season.”
Highs for MV:
Braxten Trump – 10 assists
Makenna Guillozet – 4 assists & 6 digs
Kenzea Townsend – 8 kills
Gabby Elizondo – 3 kills
Brenna Price – 10 digs
