The JV Orange volleyball team took on the Vista Ridge Rangers on Friday, Sept. 6. Although the Lady Warriors did their best, they lost 2-0. 

The Warriors started the game well, scoring the first three points, but the Rangers weren’t far behind, quickly evening the score. Lauren Wood ‘21 saved the ball with a close dive and Melani Helms ‘22 was able to barely hit the ball over the net and get the Warriors a point. Despite their impressive saves, Vista Ridge pulled ahead and won the set 25-18. 

“We really worked hard on our off blocker defense, executing, and serves,” Kenna Williams ‘22 said. “We tried to get good ups, run our offense well and hit the corners.”

During most of the second set, the Rangers stayed one point ahead of the Warriors. They did their best to catch up, with Alex Kriz ‘23 sprinting to the edge of the court and hitting the ball back over, winning them a point, but they were unable to take the lead. After a powerful strike from Vista Ridge that the Warriors were not ready for, the Rangers won the set 25-22.

“I think I could have played better, I don’t think I did very well because I wasn’t communicating with my players as well as I usually do, but other than that I think as a team we did pretty well,” Claire Delane ‘23 said. 

The JV Orange girls will take on the Stony Point Tigers next on Tuesday, Oct. 1.
