Sep 6 – Varsity Girls Volleyball at Heritage

Overall, a tough start to the Varsity Girls Volleyball season, with a 3-set loss to Heritage.  The Dons never could find a solid rhythm to their game with serving, serve-receive, and general passing proving to be the top issues.  However, there were some definite highlights:

Set 1:  At 2-10 (Dons’ score listed first) Jojo Harnish hustled to get to a pass and put a beautiful backset up for Lisa Carrington to put away for a Dons’ score.  At 3-13 the two paired up again with Harnish pushing out a long cross-court set that Carrington hit down for another score.
