Volleyball stunned to 4-11 record
October 12, 2012
Thursday night saw Summit’s girls’ volleyball team struggle, and fall.
In a match against Eagle Valley, the team lost in four sets, 17-25, 15-25, 28-26 and 18-25.
“We lost pretty bad,” head coach Liz Hughes-Waddick said. “It was a bad night for them, I think. There were a lot of unforced errors, missed serves. We’re not feeling very vindicated.”
Eagle Valley beat Summit on Sept. 20 in four sets as well.
The team had 41 attack errors versus 37 kills. Eleven service errors were racked up throughout the night.
On the bright side, the team did pass well, “which is what we’ve been working on,” Hughes-Waddick said. Defense also played relatively well, with Anna Zangari leading with 14 digs and the team tallying 43 digs on the match.
“It wasn’t about missing digs,” Hughes-Waddick said. “Our defense was OK. It was unforced errors on the offense … and hitting balls out of bounds.”
With Dakota Mendrick leaving the team, freshman Lexi Zangari stepped up as setter. Hughes-Waddick said she did well in the new position, but the rest of the team couldn’t put the pieces together against Eagle Valley.
They face Glenwood today on the road.
