Varsity girls volleyball lost to Sacred Heart Preparatory 0-3 yesterday at Blackford.

Each match had scores of 19-25, 21-25 and 16-25. Head coach Theresa Smith commented on the positives and negatives of the team’s performance.

“We came with the right intentions and we battled,” she said. “I thought we served pretty well. Blocking was a little off today. Defensively, we didn’t play normally.”

The team’s current league record is 2-5 and their overall record is 4-13, currently moving them to a losing streak. With this record, the team can not qualify for CCS for the current season.

“We had to get at least a .500 record in the preseason or a .500 record in the postseason to qualify for CCS, but now, we are unable to get a 500 record in the league season,” Melissa Kwan (11) said.

The girls lost to the Menlo School in their previous game with a score of 0-3. They won against against Notre Dame prior to the Menlo game with a score of 3-1. The team looks to improving from these losses.

“I think we played as a team really well yesterday; we all worked together a lot, and we all made mistakes but we were there to pick each other up,” Isabella Spradlin (11) said. “We probably could have prevented things like mis-serves. They put up a good block and I think that was one of their main advantages, so if we’re able to work on that for next season I think we’ll be in a much better position.”

The team will next play against Mercy High School Burlingame at Bucknall on Tuesday at 5:45 p.m.
