Volleyball team puts up tough fight against Digital in season opener
By Justist Rice,
The Patterson Lady Clippers volleyball team (both JV and Varsity) lost to its host, Digital Harbor, in the first game of the season. Although they did not win, the Clippers played a wonderful game. They put forward all their effort and that’s all that matters. The final score for JV was 25 to 14; for Varsity, 25 to 20.
”Our number one thing we have to work on is serving; good serving wins games”, said the JV coach, Ms. Heggins. The server for the JV team, Erica Purvey, had this to say: ”Next game is going to be different. It was our first game and we were a little rusty but next game we will be ready”.
The Varsity coach, Mr. Murry, had a positive outlook. ”We played a good game. Everybody did their very best. All we can do is stay hopeful and get ready for our next game”, he declared.
The all star player for varsity was Tatyana Matthews, who made an amazing hit on her knees. The captain of the girls varsity team, Memi Desta, pointed out how much the team has already improved since the previous season. ”Our team from last year to this year really progressed and we are only going to get better”, she insisted. The good sportsmanship that the Lady Clippers have has made them true winners even though they lost this game.
