Last Tuesday, Williams traveled to Princeton for another non-league match-up with the Eagles and came out victorious in a three set match: 25-21, 26-24, 25-7.

“It was a slow start for the first two matches, but we were able to get our offense corrected and slide right into a win for the third match. Staying focused on our adjustments on the court will be crucial for our upcoming league conference games,” coach Kristi Hill said after the Tuesday night’s game.

The Yellowjackets (5-3) notched another win on Thursday with a home match-up against Esparto.

The Yellowjackets dominated the first two sets with 25-7 and 25-17 scores. Errors from the serving line put Esparto back in the match, but fell short to Williams with a 25-18 fourth set victory for the Yellowjackets.

Liz Hernandez didn’t disappoint Thursday night as she served 15 consecutive points with 4 aces, and dished out 4 kills,  5 blocks, and 7 digs for Williams.

“These past two games, there has been definite improvement! We’re finally getting the rotation down along with communicating better. League will not be easy for us. Working hard and coming out strong will be key points to obtain the results we want,” Hernandez said about the Yellowjackets’ performance. “Overall, I am beyond proud of my team and the way we played in these last two games. I love seeing the improvement after each game. I can’t wait for league to begin.”

Laura Rivera added on 4 aces, 9 kills, and 3 blocks during Thursday night’s match, and Jocelyn Velazquez aided Williams to the win with 6 digs.

The Williams Yellowjackets volleyball team has an away non-conference match at Winters on Wednesday, September 14 at 6:30 PM.
