Thursday evening, Oakland Christian opened their home volleyball season by hosting Parkway Christian.
In the Varsity match, both teams battled and played well, but in the end, Parkway scored a close victory, winning 25-20, 25-23, 25-22. With only 12 players on the team, OCS divided into two teams of 6 players each, in order to play a JV and Varsity match. While that is great for the development of its younger players, it meant that OCS had no players available for substitution in either match. The starting 6 played the entire match.
Katie Hopkins led the team with 14 digs, and had 3 kills with 0 errors on 10 attacks. Kaylee Page led the team with 7 kills, and Hailee Ide was 13 for 14 serving.
The JV match was the first OCS JV competition since 2014. Katelyn Ermshler was 6 for 6 serving with two aces, and had 5 digs. Livia Quartieri and Irene Gomez also played a solid game.
The OCS volleyball team has room for up to four more players. Female students interested in joining the volleyball team should contact Mr. Hopkins
