Sports: Volleyball Sweeps SHP
On rep the prep night, the M-A volleyball team laid a 3-0 beat down on cross town rival, Sacred Heart Prep. The Bears won all three sets with ease. And again, with additional support from the football team, the 7th woman club was roaring.
In the first set, M-A trailed early, and SHP simply dominated. The 7th woman was silenced and SHP looked as if they might run away with the set. After M-A warmed up a bit, they established their own dominance and ran right through the Gators. The first set went to the Bears.
The Bears dominated the second set as well. SHP was unable to retain the thunder they brought right out of the gates, and M-A was playing like a team and eliminating all mistakes.
SHP failed to turn the game around in the third set. Although the Gators did show some signs of life toward the end of the match, they could not handle the intensity that M-A was bringing.
Senior Pauli King comments, “We had a lot more energy this game, we stayed positive and made sure they didn’t have runs of points. We capitalized on things that we were doing well, and were able to finish off the game!”
The Bears’ next game is this Saturday in a tournament at Menlo School. They team hopes their momentum from a sweep against SHP will carry over to Saturday’s games.
