MDI Volleyball Defeats Calais
The MDI Girl's Volleyball Team had a good match against Calais on Saturday, winning 3-1. The girls got off to a slow start, which Coach Corey Papadopoli mostly attributes to first game jitters. They lost a tough first game 28-26 but soon found their rhythm, winning the next 3 by scores of 25-16, 25-15, and 25-13. They struggled serving early but served better the last three games. The team also saw a big improvement in the hitting now that they've begun to work on it a bit. They worked well together on the court, communicating and moving quickly to the ball. It was a lot of fun to watch and they will only get better. Stat leaders for MDI were:
Sarah Phelps: 18 kills, 6 aces, 7 assists, 2 digs, and 1 block.
Madeline Cook: 10 kills, 11 aces, 18 assists, and 2 digs.
Camilla Tai: 3 aces, 1 assist, and 10 digs.
Deandra Kanu: 2 kills, 3 aces, 1 block, and 4 digs.
