The JV volleyball team ended the season with a 2-1 loss to Wesleyan Christian Academy of High Point Tuesday at home. St. David’s won the first set 25-15 before the Trojans came back for 25-23 and 15-9 victories to take the match. “I was pleased with the girls effort and grit all season,” said coach Katherine Koslowsky, whose team finished 9-5. “We improved as the season went on and had some good wins.”
The JV volleyball Warriors saw their three match winning streak with a 2-1 home loss to Cary Christian Thursday. St. David’s won the first set 25-17, then fell 26-24 and 15-12. “We are still improving despite the loss,” said coach Katherine Koslowski. “We were tentative and doubted ourselves for some reason after the first set. Cary Christian is very good and we played well for most of the match.” St. David’s is 7-4 and travels to Grace Christian Tuesday.
The JV volleyball Warriors bounced back from a first set loss to defeat Grace Christian, 2-1, Monday at home. St. David’s won the match 27-29, 25-9, 15-11 to raise their record to 6-3. “We started serving better in the second game and that’s what carried us,” said coach Katherine Koslowsky. Kyra Parker, Anisa Barutis, Livy O’Han and Samantha Leshnock all had five serving aces. “We also shifted our energy,” said Koslowsky. “We were nervous and scared in the first set, but finished calm and confident.”

The home-schooled group prevailed 25-23 and 25-19 as the Warriors fell to 4-3. “We played well to get ahead in both sets,” said interim coach Romel Lightbourn. “Then we got too comfortable and missed with our passes. It was good for them to learn against a strong opponent.”

The Saints answered by leading most of the second set, before the Warriors came back for a 27-25 victory to clinch the match. “I liked our start and I liked our finish,” said coach Katherine Koslowsky. “The match could have easily gone to the third set, but we dug ourselves out of the hole we created and pulled it out in two sets.”
