On Aug. 21, West Ranch girls’ volleyball faced Louisville in another preseason match. The team was off to a strong start winning the first match 25-22. From there, the team lost momentum, contributing to losses in the next three matches.

Suffering from an ongoing back injury, Allison Jacobs was forced to rely mostly on her teammates offensively. Despite the loss, a couple players put up strong performances, thus allowing the team to stay competitive with their opponents throughout.  

“Sophie Bobal did a good job,” said Coach Jamey Ker. “She hit well, passed decent, and got the most amount of swings out of anybody on the team, so Sophie definitely stood out.”

With this being a preseason game, the team is hopeful that this game will prepare them for a more successful league performance.

“We have to fix out the kinks that we have and the gaps in the dam, but this is going to help us by giving us experience with tougher servers, different approaches that they run, and attacks that they hit with too, so it’s just going to give us more experience and make us a better team,” said Gwen Garate.

In reflection of the game, Maxine Osunsanmi comments on the team’s strengths and weaknesses, but sets high expectations for the team in her senior year.

“Our strengths were definitely blocking today, but our weaknesses were that when attacking and we didn’t have a perfect set, we just swung at it, but in that situation your supposed to fit it so that you don’t lose the point. As a senior, I just want my team to win league and to show what we are capable of because it means so much more.”

Join the Cats in their next home game on Aug. 30 against Stockdale at 5:30. Good luck!
