Multiple Teams · Lancer Volleyball Defeats Bloomfield Christian

Monday evening, the Lady Lancers Volleyball team hosted Bloomfield Christian School in a non-conference match.  The Lancers got off to a quick start and dispatched the visiting Defenders in straight sets, 25-10, 25-15, 25-15.  In doing so, the Lancers stretched their winning streak to three matches.

In what might have been the Lancers best performance of the season, Katie Hopkins had a nearly flawless night.  As a setter, she had 17 assists on 55 sets without an error.  Serving, Katie registered one ace on 9 serves without an error.  Add to that four kills on eight attacks and a pair of blocks.

Outside hitters Kaylee Page and Hailee Ide paired up to make 10 and 5 kills respectively.  Hailee also led the team with five service aces.  Co-captains, Antonina “Beana” Lucido and Grace Shelata, led the team with 10 and 7 digs respectively.  After the contest, Grace Shelata said, ” I think our aggressive hits really brought up our intensity and confidence tonight.”  Beana Lucido added, “we have matured immensely as a team since August and that was shining brightly tonight.”

With the victory over Bloomfield Christian, the young Lancer squad improved their record to 7-10-2.  They are looking forward to hosting Macomb Christian at 6:30 PM on Thursday night when they will attempt to stretch their record to 4-0 in conference play.
