Girls Volleyball - Frosh/Soph

Lowell JV Volleyball Wins Their First Match of Pre-Season


With only five returning sophomores, the JV volleyball team has had to dig deep to find the team chemistry and energy needed to succeed.


After losing a rough season-opener to St. Ignatius (14-25, 9-25), it was soon to be forgotten. They worked on their skills, as well as playing together, and drove to Moraga, CA to battle against the Campolindo Cougars, as well as the 90 degree weather.


The match was close throughout. They were trading points back and forth. With one returning sophomore out due to ankle injury (suffered in the S.I. game), and two transfer sophomores ineligible to play, the lack of experience and communication on the court led to their close loss (23-25, 20-25).


Four new sophomores, and 6 new freshman join the team, but that didn't stop their confidence. They saw the progress they were making playing together, and knew they would bounce back.


And "bounce back" they did. They came into the University match with their spirits up. Agressive serving and strong hitting overpowered the Red Devils in both games, and the Lady Cardinals come out victorious (25-15, 25-11).


They know they still have a lot to work on, but are eager to play and excited about the upcoming season.
