1 min read

On Tuesday night, the girls volleyball team crushed the Aragon Dons, adding another win to their blazing start of the season. The Bears won in three short yet competitive sets of 25-14, 25-16, and 25-17.

The first set started off slow for the Bears, with the Dons taking the game’s first three points. Ultimately, the Bears pulled ahead 19-13 with powerful spikes from senior Aria Sokol and junior Sarah Littlefield, followed by back-to-back blocks by junior Sienna Morales to win the set 25-14. “We did a really good job of consistently playing together as a team, but we need to keep our energy consistent throughout the game,” said Junior Kiela King.

The second set continued the early back-and-forth nature of the first set with the Bears tying the game 11-11 after a strong start by Aragon. However, the Bears pushed forward, tallying six straight points led by an ace from King and blocks from juniors Meki Maile and Daniela Eline. The offense made quick work of the Dons, and with a powerful ace from junior Duru Ruacan, the set ended 25-16.

The Dons started the third set strong, earning five straight points against the Bears’ struggling defense and setting the score at 5-9 in favor of the Dons. After a timeout, the Bears tightened up and led an impressive rally, winning seven straight points and eventually taking back a 17-13 lead. A save from Littlefield set up the game’s winning kill for Eline to win the set 25-17. 

Head coach Denny Falls added, “I’m really proud of how well we played tonight. Our offense was firing on all cylinders and really helped finish off the game.” 

Eline hopes to continue the season’s winning streak. “We were able to stay strong and not let them score without a fight for the entire match unlike earlier in the season,” she said.

The girls volleyball team’s record is now 8-0, putting them at the top of the Peninsula division. The Bears look to build on their winning streak in a rematch against the Sequoia Ravens on Thursday.
