Volleyball Sport Short: Tranquillity

[media-credit name=”FC file photo” align=”alignright” width=”300″]Volleyball1[/media-credit]The FC Eagles traveled to Tranquillity High School to face the Tigers, Sept. 25. After coming off two losses in a row, the Eagles managed to come out with a win.

In the first match, the Eagles had a slow start. However they were able to beat the Tigers, 25-20.

The second match started similar to the first, as both teams were neck and neck. The Eagles were able to pull ahead to defeat the Tigers, 25-21.

In the third match, the Tigers fought back and were able to beat the Eagles, 25-14, adding another match to the game.

In the fourth and final set the Eagles pulled ahead quickly and ended the match 25-19, ending the game with a final score of 3-1.

Sophomore Jennifer King felt the team started to slack after the first two matches which resulted in a win for the Tigers.

“I think since we won the first two, we started to lack energy and stopped playing as hard as we could have,” King said. “We started to lower our level of playing ability. We weren’t anticipating every ball and didn’t take the game as serious as we should have.”

The Eagles were determined to come out with a win at the end of the fourth match. They fought hard and were able to come out victorious over the Tigers, 25-19.

Coach Jonathan Penberthy felt it was good to come out with the win, but he still knows the girls can reach a higher potential.

“It was nice to have a win after losing a couple games, especially against a team with a strong defense,” Penberthy said. “We only have a few more games until we start league so I really want to see us reach our full potential.”

Senior Gabriela Siqueiros recognized that the team still has work to do.

“One problem that we still face is our lack of consistency,” Siqueiros said. “We need to be consistent no matter what team we play. Tranquility obviously wasn’t the hardest team we are going to face yet they still were able to win one match.”

Junior Olivia Quebe led the team offensively with 12 kills followed by Senior Gabriela Siqueiros with 8.

The next game for the Eagles will be against Summit Charter, Sept. 30.
