Victory was the word of the night for the woman’s volleyball team after they dominated the court against Chestnut Hill College. The Lady Cavs volleyball game took place at 7:30 in the Dixon Center on Tuesday, Oct. 23. The Lady Cavs stood strong and defeated Chestnut Hill in only four matches, opposed to the intended five matches.
The Lady Cavs won match one, were defeated in match two, but then came back strong for a triumph in matches three and four.
“The team worked together, concentrated on the game, but we had fun and goofed around too” sophomore Lady Cavs player, Natalie Taylor, said with a proud smile on her face.
Helping in the Lady Cavs victory, Alyssa Smith played for the team even though she is suffering from a hip flexor injury, which makes it hard for her to even walk. In spite of the pain, Alyssa was there with her team and gave it her absolute all. “I had a lot of fun, at times too much, as you could tell for match two, but then we got our stuff together and everything worked out, we came back in the end,” Alyssa states.
Kerry Coleman stayed strong through out the matches, spiking the ball over the net every time she could. “Kerry Coleman is a huge part of the team”, Taylor notes.
As a whole, the Lady Cavs volleyball team showed their strength, not only to the Chestnut Hill College, but also to themselves. Restoring their confidence, they now have proved to themselves that they have what it takes, and plan to show in it in the matches to come.
