I'm really proud of the way our boys performed in our second match, that they won 3-0. There were contributions from all team members, and many moments for us to collectively take joy in. We also had not one, but TWO three ball attacks! Here are some individual highlights:
Joan- The team nominated Joan to be team captain, and he demonstrated excellent leadership on the court, with several controlled passes and key composed free ball plays when his team needed him most.
Max- Continues to athletically track the ball, with great instincts on free balls; Max "put the nail in the coffin" by spiking a 3-ball attack to help us take the first game.
Edwin- Good overhand serves and movement to get hands on the ball.
Josh- Very consistent underhand serves that secured several points for the team; I don't think you missed a serve!
Hendrick- Good underhand serves and continued improvement on your passes.
Luke- Nice controlled passes; Nice job setting the ball over to complete a successful 3-ball attack. Luke has also demonstrated excellent teamwork in vocally supporting his teammates.
Colin- Down 21-24 in the second game, Colin came through with three aces in a row, refusing to succumb to the pressure of the moment.
Alec- Clutch game-winning serve to decisively capture the second game!
Rory- Excellent controlled passes and improved consistency on your overhead serves. Rory also had a killer front row spike!
All in all, a great match that we should all be proud of. This week, we will continue to work on serve receive positioning and movement, as well as defense positioning and movement.
