The varsity volleyball team has been struggling to win a few games, while JV is pushing through and freshmen have lost only one game so far this year. 

However, the varsity game against Galatia Sept. 14 was very intense; it had fans on their feet and on their toes waiting to see who would come out victorious. The Dogs took the win in three matches.

Although the Lady Dogs start out strong they seem to start to die off in the middle of a set. 

“Overall they need to work on talking more and work on getting our hits more controlled. They definitely need more practice. Good things take time and practice, ”assistant coach Taryn Dewar said

Not only does Dewar see the girls need to improve but so do they. 

“I think I could improve on moving my feet more and getting ready for the ball. Also knowing every spot on the court and the rotation,” junior Kennedy Borders said. 

Dewar was pleased with the team’s performance at Galatia. 

“My favorite part of the underclassmen games was that they really worked great together as a team and kept their energy throughout both of the games,” Dewar said. “During the varsity game the entire gym was loud and electric, and I loved that our girls kept the same energy when the younger girls came into the game and the whole energy was just really fun.”

According to Dewar, these girls have been incredibly open-minded during this season, allowing younger classmen to join in. 

“I’m excited to see these girls continue to grow together. We have a solid group this year. I think we’re gonna have more wins than we thought this year because everyone works super well together,” Dewar said. 

To some girls volleyball is more than just a sport. 

“My favorite part of volleyball is the hard work and dedication you have to put in and work for because by the middle of the season, it’s like you have a second family from all the time you have spent together,” Borders said.
