Girls' Volleyball 2015 Recap

Tuesday, September 15, 2015

SMSD Girls Volleyball had a great start of the year!!

They all played great and I can’t even find a word in the dictionary that would describe them.

Wendy and I were proud of them.

The score for three games—as we play 3 best of 5—


1st Game:  25 to 19 (SMSD won)

Great job went to Fatima Al Sabounji, Tracy White and Ta’Leah Toney – they all served well.


2nd Game:  27-25 (SMSD Won)

 This game was a truly a great comeback since we were down about 6 points.  I had to motivate the girls to keep their emotion and energy up and not to give up……the hero of this game was Jasmine Hollingsworth who really saved the game.  This was a great big WHEW!!!!

3rd Game:  25- 16 (SMSD WON)!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally, Cami Cole got an opportunity to serve much better after stepping the lines few times when she had to serve during the first two games……but the third game she finally got it! She got five points during the third game.  Tracy White and Sabina Bajgai also provided support to help win the game.  Elise Watson and Moontaha Shalbi have improved from last year and will surely be assets to our team this year.
