The Warriors volleyball squad was back in action this past week playing host to the Dixon High School Rams on Tuesday, Aug. 30.
Although the Rams took the first set 25-19, the Warriors were able to rally in the second set to snag a 25-22 victory. After that, unfortunately, the Rams dug in their hooves and dominated the next two sets winning 25-14 and 25-13 to win the overall match 3-1.
A tough loss, but the Warriors would travel up to Williams Junior/Senior High School on Friday, Sept. 2 for more competition. However, the Warriors would get stung by the Yellowjackets as the hosts’ swarm of offense won them three straight sets at 25-21, 25-11 and 25-13. Williams would win the overall match 3-0.
“I am so excited to be back coaching the varsity girls. We hosted our first home game against Dixon last Tuesday, and wow, what a game. We held them pretty close but came up short in four. We had back to back rallies, Johnson had eight amazing blocks and Aguiar had seven. My libero, Bayla Garcia, was all over the back row getting digs up. We were all fired up knowing that we were in it against a majority of club players,” said head coach Mari Chavez. “Thursday was one of our most difficult losses losing in three against Williams. I believe heat played a factor in the lack of stamina for my girls. They played hard but fell short of energy. Overall, we are taking in the ability to experience and understand the importance of endurance, game stamina and to continue working hard at practices. I am really looking forward to watch my girls grow together as a team.”
