The Washington Academy Raiders defeated MDI 3-1 on Tuesday, September 20th at Bernard Parady Gymnasium. The individual set scores were 25-16, 16-25, 25-18, 25-15.

According to MDI Coach Papodapoli

Tuesday night was a great back and forth battle between two focused teams. Ultimately WA came out on top but I feel like MDI took a large step forward with their play.  You saw tough serving, hard hitting, great defense, and solid blocking.  We're starting to put the pieces together and to do so against a strong team like WA showed mental toughness as well.  We just wish we had another shot at them.  Overall the team served 90.5% with 11 aces, hit 0.167 with 26 kills, and recorded 44 digs.  We look forward to building on this match moving forward.

MDI Stat Leaders

    • Addy Boyce: 4 aces, 2 kills, 18 assists, 7 digs
    • Molly Ritter: 7 kills, 12 digs
    • Claire Moore: 7 kills
    • Meredith Cook: 1 ace, 12 digs, 38 receptions
