Win 3-1
Taft 3 ( Record 5-1) Hotchkiss 1 Set Scores: 23-25-Loss 25-16-Win 25-15-Win 25-12-Win Right from the start, Hotchkiss came out fighting and after a roll of strong serves, Taft found itself having to battle back to close the gap. Sadly, after getting the difference down to only two points, we ran out of time and dropped the first set, but much credit goes to Taft's commitment to excellence and desire to "never surrender". This competitive mindset allowed us to take the next three games earning us the first (Founders League) victory of our two match ups. The next time we will see Hotchkiss will be at their home court on Nov. 11 for the cross town rival known as Hotchkiss Day! After a well played game, the team received many kind words from parents, fans, faculty, and even the official noted the team's cohesiveness. Kaia Whitely was the leading attacker with 15 kills. Her shots were unreturnable! It was awesome to see her work so well with our setter, Emily Hardy. Emily also assisted Addie Delafield who had 11 kills and Osi Bialunska who had 9 kills. Our leading server was Emily Hardy who earned 23 points from behind the serving line. Osi Bialunska was responsible for 20 service points and Elizabeth Baratta and Anna Csigirinszkij each recorded 14 points. Addie Delafield contributed 11 and Coco Hardy placed in 9 service points. It was a sweet victory and puts us in a good position as we head up to NMH on Saturday afternoon for a 4:30 game. After that we will enjoy a few days off before we return back to campus for a 5:00 practice on Tuesday.
