Volleyball – Girls Varsity vs Wilbraham & Monson Academy – Home
KOVB played an excellent home opener against Wilbraham and Monson this Saturday winning 3-0 (25-14, 25-17, 25-19).
From the start of the match, KO pressured Wilbraham with solid serving, smart offense, and sound defense. Most importantly, KO played with great energy and competitive spirit while working as a team to maintain our momentum in the match. Some keys to staying ahead in each game were strong performances on the serving line by Kathryn Westrick and Isa Raymond, consistent serve receive passing from our whole team, and key offensive points as Sydney Smith had some beautiful kills while working around Wilbraham’s imposing blockers. Great leadership by by seniors Madi Henry and Sydni Jett helped to keep the team centered during a few tough Wilbraham runs. Our most notable performance of the match was by Isa Raymond who stepped in on short notice to take on the role of setter without missing a beat. While we will miss Isa’s great passing as Libero, our offense will be in good hands as she transitions to setting for the rest of the season. KO looks to keep its momentum going as we take on Ethel Walker at home this Wednesday at 2:30.
