St. Camillus Volleyball Rookies Return Home In Good Spirits
Finally, the girls were able to enjoy “the comforts of home” last weekend. After having back-to-back away games, the girls were relieved to play at St. Camillus on Sunday.
The first of two exhilarating games was against St. Greg’s. The girls were well-prepared for this after a rigorous practice on Wednesday night. Although they lost, they did not go down without a fight. The numbers were all very close for all three matches.
The defensive end of the team is progressing nicely, that was evident in both games. Demi and Mary (even with her “arm injury”) shined in every position on the court. They were both accurate and aggressive; a winning combination for volleyball.
The service is coming along nicely as well. As the season rolls on, more and more girls are scoring points for the team. Jeanie and Hillary continued to uphold their reputations as consistent servers during the first game. Amanda ventured into “overhand” territory and did exceptionally well catching the opponent off-guard.
Although the girls were getting a bit cranky by the close of the first game, they soon bounced-back to their usual vivacious selves.
Thank you to the fine people at the 101 Deli who provided the girls with nourishment and with a sugar rush to carry them through the second game. Thanks also to Teiddyne, our main “cheerleader,” who always manages to keep the team glowing.
The game against St. Mel’s sent everyone home in a good mood. The girls enjoyed a sweeping victory, winning all three matches. It was well-deserved; all of the girls actively participated on the court. Everyone was making their serves over and was hustling on defense. Team morale noticeably increased since the previous game as well, and a positive attitude does win games.
