JV, freshman volleyball teams play hard

By
September 22, 2010 |

Playing a rugged schedule last week, the Lady Junior Varsity Blue Devils split a pair of volleyball matches.

First, against powerhouse Nevada Union, coach Julie CrawfordÕs charges fell 25-19, 25-17 Ñ staying competitive the whole way.

Then last Thursday, before a packed house at the Davis High, the locals were in control against arch-rival Woodland, 25-14, 25-18.

It was another week of great serving by sophomore Lyndsay Chambers, according to Crawford, who also praised the play of setter Stephanie Siu.

ÒStephanie did an excellent job of getting the ball to our hitters so we could run our offense,Ó Crawford explained.

Freshman Emma Peterson and sophomores Adriana Defty and Ally Crary contributed inspired play as Davis is now 2-2 on the young season.

ÒThis last week we have been working really hard on advancing our offense,Ó Crawford continued. ÒOur goal is to run a faster offense than our opponent.

ÒWe are working on taking advantage of easy balls that our opponent gives us, and being able to execute our faster offense.Ó

Crawford said sheÕs pleased with the Òpowerful serving team we have,Ó adding itÕs one of her Òbiggest goals as a coach (having a) strong serving team. The girls work really hard, on a daily basis, perfecting their toughest serve.Ó

Meanwhile, the freshman team played the same two opponents, dropping both outings.

But there were encouraging games. Against Nevada Union, the Blue Devils battled before losing 25-21. Then the Miners prevailed, 25-7.

Lauren Smith had strong play at the net and Mackenzie Harrison was terrific setting throughout both games, according to coach Lyndsay Cantrell.

In the Woodland match, DHS started slow, dropped a 25-13 first set, but came back in a rousing finale before falling, 26-24.

ÒEmily Paciulla was the most consistent with no errors and one block and Danielle Gantar had the strongest serve receive passing in the second game, where she stepped into a position she had never played before,Ó Cantrell said of her players.

Davis was on the road at Rocklin Tuesday and returns home Thursday for games with Lodi. Freshmen play at 4 p.m. with junior varsity approximately an hour later.
