Taft vs. Exeter (1-3) Set 1: 25-18 Set 2: 14-25 Set 3: 17-25 Set 4: 9-25 After another great day of volleyball Taft unfortunately came up short in both games today. Our first game against Andover was a true back and forth battle. We came from behind to capture the first set by only two points, 25-23. The excitement continued into the next set, with long rallies but unfortunately Taft fell short by two points, 25-27! Heading into the third set Taft lost a bit of momentum but we still had thrilling saves out of the net and strong attacks. Ultimately it came down to the wire and we lost a very close battle, 22-25. Our second game of the day was against Exeter. Exeter is a big, strong, and confident team who runs a fast tempo offense. We were able to exploit some of their weaknesses early on in the first set, winning 25-18. However in the succeeding sets we struggled against their strong front line and powerful serves, losing the next three (14-25, 17-25, 9-25). These two matches gave us a lot of insight on areas of focus moving forward. With these games early on in the season we are confident that our continued growth will only help us as we move on in our season and we can continue to build off of these first three games. Thank you, Andover, for hosting and we hope to see both of these teams later on in the season. Next up we take on Ethel Walker School home at 2:30!
