The Dowell Lionettes 8th grade volleyball teams played a tough round of games against Faubion Middle School on Thursday, Sept. 20th.
The Blue “B” team lost in a hard-fought 3 set match with scores of 12-25, 25-14 and 22-25. Mallory Hugghins dominated at the service line once again with a 6-point serving streak in games 2 AND 3, racking up 4 aces along the way. Landry Hugghins and Zoe McKay also had 2 aces each throughout the night. Kelsey Drake and Montserrat Donadio made several smart moves defensively to keep the ball in play. Although they didn’t come away with the “W” our Blue squad showed a lot of heart!
The Gold “A” team also had a tough 3 set loss with scores of 17-25, 25-18 and 25-13. Sophia Ricci really stepped up for her team and rocked the service line with an impressive 7 serve streak in game 2 that included 5 aces! Sydney Visser had 4 kills from the front row and Reagan Brown contributed 2 kills at the net and 1 back-row. Way to fight ladies!
Closing out the evening, the White “C” team lost their game in 2 sets with scores of 18-25 and 13-25. Hailey Millwee and Qua Mathis each went on a 5-point serving streak in game 1 with 2 aces each. Defensively, Emma Demouy and Alivia Rowe had several great defensive passes while KK Washerlesky had 2 tip kills at the net. We’ll get them next time!
It was a tough week for the Lady Lionettes but they are working hard and will come back stronger Thursday, Sept. 27th, when they face Johnson Middle School for their next away game. One Heart, One Team, LIONETTES!
