Caitlyn Dye,  Staff Writer – Lecanto High School’s [LHS] junior varsity [JV] volleyball team played against Seven Rivers [SR] September 21,2015.

The game started at 6:30 p.m. The Panthers played a good game, but not good enough to pull off a win against SR. They played a total of three games, and the scores were all really close.

Sophomore Ashley Southey did not think the team played that great.

“It felt like an off day. We barely communicated, mostly all of our serves hit net, and all of our hits went out-of-bounds,” said Southey.

JV Coach Brittany Szunko discussed how the team played against SR.

“We didn’t display our top performance; we struggled in serve receive and didn’t execute our offense. Overall, we have improved, but didn’t play to our level,” said Szunko.

Szunko also described what she expected from her players on the JV team.

“We consistently strive to achieve bigger and better goals: to listen, pay attention, and grow as a player or person,” said Szunko.

There are also positives that have been pursued throughout the season of volleyball, as there have been a lot of improvements.

Freshman Courtney Dye has noticed her multiple strengths and weaknesses on the court.

“My strengths are serving and passing, and my weaknesses would be placing the ball with my hit,”said Dye.

Dye has noticed some improvements as well.

“I have improved a lot with my blocking and hitting from the start of the season,” said Dye.

Freshman Kelley Sullivan is learning how to adapt to high school volleyball but already has an advantage that a lot of other players don’t have.

“I play all around on the court,” said Sullivan.

The players and coaches are hoping for those last couple of wins as they finish their season out.
