Although we lost, all the girls did really well and we played a great game.
In the second game, #17 from Notre Dame made many powerful spikes. But that didn’t stop us because this was the game that we won. It was a very intense game. All the girls on the St. Pats team had great serves and they worked very well together to get the win. We deserved the victory and St. Pats crushed Notre Dame 25-13.
In the final game, we again played very hard. The girls worked brilliantly together. Jessica Plinovich (#13) and Anna Long (#2) made a lot of outstanding serves, as well as the other girls. It was a very close game, with the score being 15-14, Notre Dame winning.
