JV White Volleyball Suffers Defeat to Round Rock 2-0

Isabelle Horonzy
Nathalie Kiefer’ 26 prepares to receive a pass to set her team up for another fantastic kill. The JV White Volleyball team became a lot closer throughout the season and strives to work as a team.

On Friday Sept. 15, the JV White volleyball team faced off against the Round Rock Dragons on the Lady Warriors home court. The Lady Warriors fought hard through both sets but ultimately ended up losing the game 2-0 against their district rivals.

During the first set the Lady Warriors played hard and fought until the very end, however they came up short, losing the set by a score of 25-9. 

After a setback in the first set, the Lady Warriors were still determined to win. After a quick pep talk by their coach, they took the court and proved themselves with a much closer set than the first. With strong offense from both teams, the score of the second set was 25-18 in favor of the Dragons, ending the game in two sets. 

“I think the communication was really good during our game,” Autumn Jacobs ’26 said. “We put in a lot of effort and tried to stay up in the points. I think our energy was low on the court and we started to get frustrated which brought the energy down even more.” 

Despite the loss, there were still positives to take away for the Lady Warriors. The team was serving well-placed aces through the whole game and the attackers had multiple impressive kills. Moreover, the Warriors cheered on their teammates the whole game, uplifting their spirits and improving their play. 

“I felt like it was a pretty OK game,” Simone Riha ’26 said. “We shanked the ball a lot but we also had some impressive saves. I also love to cheer on my team. I think it makes us play better and work better together.” 

The Lady Warriors not only had to keep up their teamwork through this game but they also had to keep a positive mindset and keep their heads up when they were down.

“I would reset after my mistakes quickly but overall I feel like I could be working harder and making more changes to how I play,” Avnee Upadhye ’27 said. 

The Lady Warriors will play next against the McNeil Mavericks at McNeil High School on Tuesday Sept. 19 at 6:30 p.m.
