Patriots Handed Second Loss

October 12, 2020

By: Makenna Held, a junior at Leigh High School


            The Patriot volleyball team was prepared and ready to play as they headed up to Norfolk on Tuesday, October 6, for their second triangular of the year, featuring Shelby-Rising City, and Lutheran High Northeast. 

            The first match for the Patriots was the Huskies. Clarkson-Leigh pounced on Shelby right from the beginning in the first set, and won easily 25-13. The Huskies were ready to play the second set, though, and they hung with the Patriots until the end.  The Patriots managed  to came out on top 25-22. 

            Assistant coach, Jennifer Remmereid said, “In the first match, Shelby-Rising City led a few runs by relying on our errors and keeping the ball in play on some of our softer hits. There were times that we showed some great first-ball kills and aces and could seal the win in two sets.”

            It was then time to play the undefeated Lutheran High Northeast Eagles. The Patriots came out slow and quickly got behind. They tried to fight back, but couldn’t regain enough and lost the first set 12-25.

In the second set, Clarkson-Leigh hung tight for the first half, but Lutheran High’s attacks and scrappy play led to the Patriots’ second loss of the season. 

In the disappointing loss, the Patriots struggled to get anything going offensively, recording only 8 kills and 1 ace serve as a team. 

            Cassidy Hoffman, senior, said, “We definitely did not play our game during this triangular. We beat SRC, but it definitely wasn't the level of play we usually play at. We came out flat-footed against Lutheran High and couldn't really get our offense flowing because they made us play out of system so much. They were a good team, but we made them look 10 times better than they actually were. We hope to bounce back from this loss and take care of business in the coming weeks.”

            Coach Remmereid is looking to the future.

 “Pressure is huge right now, and it's good for our team to grow through that. State rankings, conference seeding, and tournament seeding all plays into the adrenaline of our team and the teams we play.

“Against Lutheran High, we knew they were going to be a challenge, but their attack was quick, and it took us more time to adjust on defense. We know that we need to clean up our passes and improve our out of system play so that we can stay in attack mode. We have some good teams coming up on our schedule, and I'm anxious to see how we improve our battle mentality to be prepared for the postseason.”
