The James Logan High School girls' volleyball team made the most of their home opener, defeating Antioch High School in 3 straight games: 25-19, 25-17, and 25-7.
The Colts looked sluggish in Games 1 and 2, but played well enough to win both. Antioch stayed close in each game, and even tied the score in Game 2 at 16-16 before the Colts pulled away to win.
In Game 3 the Colts finally began to play to their potential by focusing more, minimizing their own errors, and making the visiting team pay whenever they sent over a "free ball". It was nice to see a fast paced attack occur multiple times with lots of success, due to everyone fulfilling their role on the team. Better passing and digging by the Colts resulted in more accurate sets to the hitters, who were in better position to attack the ball because of their great attention to detail.
This match proved to be a good opportunity for Logan to utilize a lot of things that they had been working on in practice in a real game/match situation. It was very nice to see the continued progress of the team. While there is still a lot of work to do, tonight's concentration, attention to detail and high level of effort in Game 3 allowed the Colts to play at a high level. Keep up the good work!
