On Monday, August 28, our Lady Chargers played the Williams Field Blackhawks in a spectacular game of volleyball. Our Lady Chargers fought hard, taking the opposing team to five matches. In the end, the Lady Chargers lost 12-15 in the fifth match, leaving a bitter taste, which will hopefully be fuel for the next game.

For those who do not know how volleyball works, the winner is declared by the best of five sets, or matches. Most games go to three or four sets but this hard-fought game went all the way to the max, five sets. Each set, or match, goes to 25 points, and the first to score 25 points, wins that set. In the event of a fifth set, it is the best of 15 instead of 25.

The rules are simple: each side has three hits to return the volleyball across the net and to the opponent. If the team cannot return the ball by three hits, or if the ball hits out-of-bounds on either side, then the opposing team will receive the point. The best out of these five sets determines the winner, and sadly, our Lady Chargers did not come out on top that night.

The first set was a win for the Blackhawks, with a score of 22-25. The score was neck-and-neck until the end. Thanks to Emily Kost’s killer spikes, the Chargers tied it up at 22-22.

‘The second set was another great one, and our Lady Chargers took the win with a score of 25-23. Right from the start, Emily Kost was doing great with her spikes, and Kayla Anderson had a few great saves that rallied up more points for the team. At that point, the score was 1-1 as they went into the third set. Between Allie Boyd’s great spikes and Taylor VanDuyn’s great serves, the Lady Chargers won the third set, bringing the score to 2-1 with the Chargers in the lead.

The fourth set was a loss for the Chargers, despite the great spikes from Julia Boyd. The crowd’s enthusiasm rose as the intensity of the game increased entering into the fifth and final match. The winner of this set would take the win and the bragging rights. The game ended in a loss for our Lady Chargers by a difference of only three points. The set ended with a score of 19-25, with the final score being 3-2 Blackhawks with the win.

All the supporters in the crowd helped the team fight through to the end. Throughout the entire game, the crowd was supportive of our school, cheering on the Varsity Girl’s Volleyball team the whole time. Despite the loss, it was a nail-biting game that, sadly, did not go our way. After asking Julia Boyd how she thought the game went, she commented ,”I think the game went well. We fought hard for every point.”

We congratulate the girls on a great game and wish them the best for this season.
