Patriots Runner Up in Humphrey Quad

Three intense games. Two wins and one loss. The Patriots played their hearts out on Saturday October 6, 2017 at the Humphrey/Lindsay volleyball quad in Humphrey.

 

To start off the day, the Patriots played the Twin River Titans. In the first set, the Patriots battled and came on top with a win 25-21. The second set the Patriots continued with their momentum and defeated the Titans 25-21.

 

The second match was against Humphrey Lindsay Holy Family (HLHF). The Patriots were on a good roll and feeling good after their first game. The Patriots battled it out but came out with a loss 22-25. In the second set, they battled even more, but it wasn’t enough to take down undefeated HLHF.  The Patriots lost to them for the second time this season with the score of the second set 26-28.

 

The Patriots’ final game of the day was against Howells-Dodge. They knew what they had to do from their mistakes of the previous game. The Patriots came out with great intensity and won the first set 25-14. The next set they made some unnecessary errors but still came out on top 25-18 winning the game.

 

The Patriots’ record after these three matches stands at 18-6

 

Coach Rebecca Schneider said, “Saturday's quad was a great outing for us! We didn't play with an exceptional amount of energy the first game against Twin River, but we were able to stay on top and finish! We played HLHF a lot better than we did the first time around! We were able to execute and capitalize on key moments. We had our shot in the second set to give us an opportunity to take it to a third set, however, they went on an 8-2 run and we couldn't finish.  Those last few points we felt we played timid, almost hoping they [HLHF] would make a mistake, but in turn it backfired and we were the ones making mistakes. We didn't play fearless and we played not to lose. We finished the day dominating Howells-Dodge. We really stepped up and took care of business the way we know how! It was really good to finish the day on a high note!  Going 2-1 was a successful day going up against those three teams!”

 

Senior Hannah Kasik said, “Our first game, against Twin River, was a good start to the quad. We knew the next game against Humphrey/Lindsay would be far more challenging. This game was a battle the entire two sets. If we got down a few points, we made a run. Unfortunately, we couldn't finish at the correct time.  This was a game we should have won, but we definitely improved our game since the last time we played them. Hopefully, we will get another shot at them in conference. The last game of the day, against Howells-Dodge, was a good finish. We picked up a lot of their hits and made some good plays. These games made me excited for conference!"
