Lady Pirate Volleyball Up for the Challenge at Jeff
Score line: CHS vs. Jeff
CHS C-team lost 5-25, 11-25; CHS JV team lost 18-25, 11-25; CHS Varsity lost 7-25, 20-25, 12-25.
In our C-Team match up we struggled in the first game with our serve receive. We played better in our second match by communicating more and moving our feet better to get to passes. We did better tonight with making our offense and defensive switches.
Overall our JV team had a solid performance. We had a few mental lapses with some basic fundamentals like passing free balls over the net and breaking down in our passing at times, but for a very young team we are preforming well. We are still learning to control our bodies when on the net blocking, but we are doing better with that also. Hannah Vincent had another all around good night for us, and Maddie Nuxoll got to almost every second ball with her hands which gave the team more opportunities to hit.
No team likes to lose and as a coach and former player I don’t like to lose either, but despite the loss I have more positive than negative things to say. This team have very little Varsity and Club volleyball experience, but they are still showing teams that they can compete. This team works well together and is capable of getting some wins this year. Emalee Craven was our leading offensive threat again tonight and led the team with 9 kills. She also contributed three blocks. Danielle Miles, Alex Chester and Shelby Goedeker also contributed 3 kills each. Although we continue to struggle with our serve reception, our defense helped us stay in the game. Shelby Goedeker led the defense with 5 digs. I was also pleased with no serving errors tonight. We will continue to work hard in practice tomorrow and face two tough conference opponents, Brownstown and Clarksville, this Saturday.
