Marian High School
Fairfield Jr. Sr. High School
In our first real match of the season, Marian travelled down to Fairfield High, and had pretty good night. In very humid conditions, our girls played hard against a very competent Fairfield Varsity crew. After getting used to full-pressure match play , and winning the first set, Marian fell victim to the great setting of Fairfield’s Julia Brown and the quick attacks of senior Middle Makayla Bell, and her hard-swinging teammates . One of the strong points of our girls is their ability to deal with adversity. And, after some moments of adjustment and calming, they got their emotions in check and started to put it all back together. Big hits from all of our girls… great setting from Junior Kelsey Ketcham, and fantastic defense from Senior Libero Emily Sharp kept our girls on track.
All in all, a good “first-outting”, as they say. Lots of good lessons learned.
