Sahuaro Volleyball’s Epic Win Over Amphitheater


On September 14, Sahuaro traveled to Amphitheater for a girls’ volleyball game. This was the varsity’s second official win of the season so far. They did much better on and off the court, keeping up the momentum that seemed to be lost in previous games. However, they underestimated Amphitheater, thinking because of their losing streak that they could easily bring home the win. As they played more, the mistakes began to be minimized and there was a huge gap with both teams in each set. The first set was 19-25, the second set was 14-25, and the third set was 15-25. Sahuaro had a lead with every set but had to remember to take each match seriously.

In the first set, Sahuaro’s team had many serve errors and serve-receive errors; that is why the score was so close. Junior Haylee Au, who is the varsity setter said, “I think we definitely underestimated them and could’ve played a lot better but also I think we were playing much smarter than earlier games.” The communication is lacking on the team and they get in their heads a lot, which has a negative impact on future games. Maddison Murrow, senior and outside hitter on varsity said, “We did pretty well but our serve receive is still very shaky and our communication needs work, which is really our only issue.” If they get better at those few mistakes, they could be a near-unstoppable force.

The second and the third set were much better because, at that point, the other team was continuously messing up. When it comes to teamwork, they can come a long way on the court. Coach Haynes, the varsity coach said, “I’m proud of our dedication and the drive we showed for that game. Of course, we need to work on some things but other than that I’m just proud.” The support that they showed for each other after the game is what they need throughout every game played on that team.
