Freshman Girls Volleyball – Oct 17

Freshman Girls Volleyball – by Hunter Davis

October 17 – On Tuesday, the Acalanes Freshman Girls Volleyball squad traveled to Moraga to take on Campolindo. There was a rivalry feel in the air, though the Cougars did not enjoy the strong fan support the Dons mustered for their home matchup. Campo did use the home court advantage to jump out to a 7-1 lead before a kill and ace from Lauren Davis stopped the bleeding at 7-3. Two phenomenal digs from libero Sydney Sowarby and strong serving from outside Carly Coffee and Maren Takeuchi gave the Dons their first lead at 9-8. The teams traded points until 16-15 which included a nice tip from middle Samantha Hansen off a set from Bella Draper and some great serves from Lyla Cox. Campo surged to a 22-17 lead before two kills from Lauren Davis, on Audrey Passalaqua assists (subbing in at setter for an ill Megan Go) and great defense from Sydney Sowarby got it back to 22-21. In the end the Cougars pulled it off 25-21.

The Dons had a better start to the second set as the teams went back and forth to a 7-7 tie, highlighted by a back corner kill from Audrey Passalacqua and some nice defense from Daisy Sibley. Libby Ross and Chloe Wu each put down some nice serves in the second game as the Dons fought to forge a comeback from 19-8 down, but the hosts held on for a 25-14 victory.
