   The girls freshman volleyball team played the Crown Point Bulldogs on Aug. 31. Lake Central defeated the Bulldogs with a final score of 20-25. “I am very confident in our volleyball team. I know that Crown Point is a very hard team to beat, but hopefully they will get it done,” Sophia Palmer (9) said.

   Sophia claimed that after long hours of practicing the team has determined that even though they are away from home, they still have a fighting chance to beat the Bulldogs. Before the game started, her confidence level in the team was an eight. 

   “I thought it was going to be a tough match, but we gave a good fight. I believed in us, but I did not think we were going to win. In the end, we pulled it off and we got it,” Mikala Salinas (9) said. 

   In the first half of the game, Lake Central immediately took the lead with a score of 16-25. It was an easy win for LC, and a hard loss for Crown Point. 

   “I would say my girls did a 9-10. I feel like what we’ve been lacking a little bit is just teamwork, and I think today they really played as a team and they finally saw their potential. They had high energy and high communication. There are always little things we can work on, whether it is fundamentals or our volleyball IQ, there is always room to learn,” Coach Alondra, Athletics, said.
