Acalanes Freshmen Girls Volleyball vs College Park

Acalanes Freshman Girls Volleyball – by Hunter Davis
October 24 – On Wednesday, the Acalanes Freshman Girls Volleyball team took on the College Park Falcons in the second leg of a back-to-back following Monday’s win over Miramonte. The game started out a bit choppy with College Park keeping it close to 10-10, which may have been attributed to several players trying out new positions. The defense was solid early on behind Daisy Sibleyand Maren Takeuchi, with Chloe Wu and Libby Ross each rotating in to serve and provide support. The team settled in a bit as freshly minted outside Lyla Cox put down some hits, new middle Lauren Davis came through with a few kills and stuffs, and Bella Draper was swinging away at oppo. Veteran setter Megan Go did a nice job distributing to both her new weapons, and the front row tandem of Samantha Hansen and Carly Coffee who each contributed in their traditional roles. The Dons pulled away to win the first set 25-19.

Carly stepped up in the start of the second set as well painting the end line for two early kills, as Megan served off 20 consecutive points before a Falcons side out. Audrey Passalacqua came in to close out the second set serving and playing DS, while libero Sydney Sowarby, who had enough digs for 2 matches in her standout performance Monday had the night off as the Dons closed out College Park 25-2. Congrats to all the Seniors!
