The MDI Trojan's Volleyball team defeated Thornton Academy 3-0 on Saturday, October 12 in Bar Harbor. The individual game scores were 25-6, 25-12, 25-8. With the victory, MDI improves to 8-3 on the season, and Thornton Academy falls to 1-10.

Here's Coach Corey's take on the game:

We got support from the entire team on this one, which was great.  It was good to see the girls communicate well and manufacture points crisply and efficiently.  We served well, passed really well, and hit well.  The girls stayed sharp all day and it showed just how deep this team is with everyone coming in and making plays.  Thornton Academy is a tall team and we hit well around the block and covered well.  Looking forward to closing out the regular season next week.
