The varsity volleyball team worked together to defeat the Lowell Red Devils Monday, Sept. 19. The Lady Indians had a hard-fought battle, but the girls ended up with the win.

“I think we had a good offensive attack and played pretty good defense. We got some hands on balls by blocking their two best hitters,” Assist. Varsity Coach Bill Gray said.

The Indians won their first set 25-19. Their main focus was to work defensively in order to win the next set.  

“[We tried] to slow down their two big outside hitters with some kind of block and digging, which we did effectively,” Gray said.

The girls easily won the next set 25-12, but the fight was certainly not over.

“I think we definitely played way better than we have been playing in previous games. Everyone really stepped it up,” Linda Morton (12) said.

During the first two sets, the Indians excelled. The third set, however, proved to be much more difficult.

“We really fought back because we almost lost in the end, but we finished nicely,” Mia DiNino (11) said.

The girls clinched a win in the third set, 25-22. Throughout all three sets, the Lady Indians stayed positive and worked together.

“[Lowell] has a very good record, so we were really excited about beating them in three [sets], and especially at home,” Gray said.

The next varsity volleyball game is this Thursday night at Crown Point. The Indians are looking forward to what the rest of their season will bring.

“I’m really excited to see what this season has in store for us because I really think we can go far,” DiNino said.
