‘Jackets best Panthers again

maxwell-williams-vbMost of the statistics from the Yellowjackets volleyball team (9-8) were exactly what coach Kristi Hill was hoping for in last Tuesday’s match up against the Maxwell Panthers.

The only numbers that mattered to the Yellowjackets at the end of the game, however, were the ones on the scoreboard that showed a win.

“We came to play and once we got in sync on the court everything just came together for us,” said Hill.

The Panthers, eager to capture a win, came out strong in the first set with a 25-12 victory. As with their Sept. 1 match-up against Williams, however, keeping serves in play was an issue for the Panthers, and the Yellowjackets dominated the second and third matches with scores 25-16 and 25-13.

The Panthers put together their best offensive lineup for the fourth match.

Kills by Hannah Azevedo and Madison Miller helped the Panthers keep the fourth set close, but the Yellowjackets began to pull away mid-match with a series of flawless serves from Liz Hernandez.

Maxwell called a timeout to regroup, as the squad was down 22-20. A back-and-forth battle between the two teams ensued, but Panthers errors helped propel the Yellowjackets to a 26-24 score and a match win.

“Overall, I believe my team pushed themselves well against Maxwell. We not only worked on our own mistakes during the game, but we pushed each other as a team as well. It’s important for a team to work as a whole and that’s what we did. Winning twice against Maxwell feels really good and it wasn’t easy but it really shows our progress and how our team can really perform,” said Yellowjackets senior Caroline Molina.

“It was a hard fought game,” said Maxwell’s Athletic Director Forrest Bateman after Tuesday’s game.

“This was a very spirited and exciting game. I thoroughly enjoyed the competition and look forward to future games,” said Maxwell’s Superintendent Zach Thurman.

For the Panthers, Mallory Mathis contributed 7 aces and 8 digs, Tiffany Jenkins ended with 4 kills and 9 digs and Hannah Azevedo aided to the win with 5 kills and 12 digs.

Yellowjackets Laura Rivera laid down 5 kills and 2 aces, Caroline Molina notched 4 kills and 1 ace. Jennifer Paiz went 100 percent from the service line with 4 aces.

The Williams Yellowjackets volleyball team has a home conference match against Hamilton on Thursday, Sept. 29, at 6:30 PM.

The Maxwell Panthers volleyball team has a home conference match against Quincy on Thursday, Sept. 29, at 6:00 PM.
