The St. Leo Lions' "A" volleyball team was victorious in its match against Mary Queen on Sept. 7 (21-17, 21-18). "We have a group of kids that have been together for a while, and it's helping us out here," said Coach David Higdon. "We have six eighth graders, and the rest are seventh graders on this team. The girls are enjoying this season, and we are looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish." The Lions were able to control the pace of the match by keeping the ball deep into the Panthers' side of the court. When the ball was hit shallow, the Lions were able to pounce and use their size to score quickly. "We had great communication out here as a team tonight," said Ella Oberlander. "Mary Queen had a good amount of size up front, so we struggled with handling them spiking the ball so much early on. Once we worked on our setups a little bit more, we were able to overcome the attacks at the net." In the second and final set, Oberlander and Mary Peyton Thompson were able to use their length to score a few key points at the net and win the match. "I thought we showed up and played well," said Raylee Carrico. "I think for a few minutes we forgot how to play the game but were able to regroup and get momentum back on our side. It sure felt great to win this one."
