Patriots Take Down Flyers In 3

October 22, 2020

By: Makenna Held, junior at Leigh High School

            The seniors’ last game at their home court was a definitive show of strength, as all levels put up great fights against the Humphrey St. Francis Flyers. The Patriot volleyball team hosted their last home match of the season on October 8 and improved their season record to 17-2. 

The C team level played two sets first. The ending scores for their sets were 25-23 and 25-20. They set the tone for the night by winning their sets and prevailing in tight games. 

            After this it was time for JV. They also played two sets. The Patriots kept the Flyers on their toes and won the first set 25-17, but the Flyers were ready to battle and they won the second set 25-17. 

            Finally, it was time for the last game of the night, varsity. Clarkson-Leigh got a large jump on the Flyers in the first set, and St. Francis could not come back. The first set ended 25-20. 

In the second set, the Patriots came out even more fired up and ready to jump on the Flyers. The kills left and right and great passes kept point after point coming in favor of the Patriots. The ending score resulted 25-26. 

Hoping to be the last and final set of the night, Clarkson-Leigh started the match out fantastic with a 6-2 lead. The Flyers wouldn’t go down without a fight, though, and they tied it at 8-8. Great serves and offense for the Patriots let them take down the Flyers and end the match 25-19. 

Rebecca Schneider, Head Coach for the Patriots, said this about the game: “The St. Fran match was awesome!  I would say it's probably the best match of the season!  We came out with a lot of energy and simply dominated!  Our goal was to get them out of system and shut down Weidner and Wessel, and that's exactly what we did!  We played really well together, and everything was smooth and effortless!  I just can't say enough good things about that match!  It was simply awesome!!” 

Korbee Wendt, sophomore, said, “Overall it was a great way to bounce back from the losses at the Clarkson-Leigh Tournament on Saturday and the triangular on Tuesday. Winning against St. Francis in 3 sets was a great feeling. We are a team that works well together, and it shows.”
