Loss 0-3 (19-25, 18-25, 9-25)
Hopkins won the match in 3 sets (25-19, 25-18, 25-9). KO’s effective offensive decision making made for highly competitive openings to each set. We started off with aggressive serving from Jill Plaut ‘23 that she followed up with formidable blocking to deter the Hopkins offense. Co-captain Keira Sullivan ‘23 kept the offensive charge going with punishing hitting deep into the opposite side of the court, and Ava Cashman ‘24 added some creative adjustments to her hit placement to adapt to solid defense from the opponent. Naomi Wong ‘22 had an impressive serving run in the first set, keeping her composure at the pressure-filled service line. The Wyvern defense, facing one of its toughest challenges yet, was headed by Allie Arcaro ‘24 managing the serve receive in the libero position, Lindsay Bailey ‘22 making clever tipping decisions the net, and co-captain Mackenzie Caruso ‘22 going for every last dig in a difficult third set. 

This was a good opportunity for the team to work on our formations and communication on the court, and we look forward to the next match away at Wilbraham and Monson on 9/25!
