Ss. Peter & Paul A-team falls in three sets
The Ss. Peter & Paul girls B volleyball team picked up its first win in the history of the program by beating Columbia Catholic in two straight Thursday night in Columbia by the scores of 25-20 and 25-22.
Ss. Peter & Paul coach Carol Griffin said the girls played well enough to win the game. “The girls were not as focused as we have been in other games,” Griffin said, “but a win is a win and we will take it. However, we will need to work on not overlapping and knowing where we are on the floor.”
Griffin said standouts for the match for the Lady Warriors were Alyssa Fitzgerald with five aces, Addison Brownfield with three aces and three kills, Emma West with five aces and four kills, Lillian Rohrbach with one kill and one kill, Molly Amost with one ace and one kill, Olivia Eichelberger with one assist and Audrey Spears with one ace.
Griffin said Alondra Green also saw some playing time as well.
In the A-team match, the Lady Warriors fell in three sets against Columbia Catholic by the scores of 25-10, 21-25 and 12-15.
Ss. Peter & Paul coach Dina Herzog said the first game was practically flawless. “We served well, moved our feet to get to the ball and passed and communicated early. “I was very proud,” Herzog said. “We did things correctly.”
In the second game, Herzog said the girls had too many missed served, which made them play cautiously. “We play better when we are aggressive,” Herzog said. “In the third game, we dropped balls and the momentum started to fade. We did a lot of good things. I saw tremendous improvement. I don’t mind a loss when I see the girls playing together doing things correctly.”
Eliza Adams had 14 service points with eight aces along with one kill and one dig.
Brooke Eichelberger finished the match with eight service points with one ace along with two kills and one dig while Abby Reisinger had 10 service points with three aces and five assists, Lily Terrell with nine service points with five aces, five kills and three digs, Grace Roberts with six service points with three aces, Taylor Frederick with five service points with two aces and two assists, Ashlyn Twenter with three service points with one ace, Jordan Brackman with two service points and two kills and Maggie McGuire and Gabi Webster each with one kill.
