“Listen guys, you see that 22 up there? That’s not 22 points that they got, that’s 22 mistakes that we mades” said freshman Lia Bonnell in a team meeting after a risky turn of events in the first match.
This past Tuesday, our Lady Titans took on Lakewood Tigers in what turned out to be a very exciting match. Our girls overcame the Tigers 2-0 with the score of the first match ending at 25 – 22, the second match at 25 – 15. With a current record of 3 – 2, the freshman team is proving that they’re a force to be reckoned with.
Complete with many great calls and some amazing volleys, Tuesday’s game was a true nail biter. The Tigers started to form a comeback towards the end of the first match, scoring about five points before the Titans regained control.
“I feel we could have played a lot better during the first match. We made a lot of dumb mistakes that the other team didn’t force on us. But we definitely picked it up and performed much better during the second match, came together more as a team and worked together to win in the end,” said Bonnell.
