Volleyball: Pierce keeping the ball up

Home Sports Volleyball: Pierce keeping the ball up
The Lady Bears have not slowed down this season. Consistent gaming is a part of Coach Kim Travis’ grand design to build a stronger team. 

Pierce’s victories outnumber their losses and Travis has turned them into a learning experience, building on a good team as the Lady Bears keep fighting tough competition.

“We have lost some tough matches,” Travis said. “I believe it is helping us get better. This team keeps fighting. They are not losing their enthusiasm and I am so proud of their efforts.”

The JV team is a part of Travis’ long term goal and they have been also learning from the strategy, after several recent wins against Woodland Christian 25-14, 25-17 and Dixon 25-7, 25-12. 

Travis said sophomore Leslie Villanueva, freshman Jocelyn Medina, and sophomore Jaylianna Valencia have been consistent players for the Bears.

At the varsity home game on Thursday against Hamilton, the Bears won 3-0. Junior Sierra Murphy was an ace and served up four of them for her team. Seniors Halle Charter and Emily Ehrke both killed it by each attacking eight times. The team’s sets were 25-9, 25-12, 25-13.

The varsity defeated Woodland Christian at a home game on Sept. 16 with a score of 3-0, the sets at 25-14, 25-15, 25-21. A day later, Dixon came to play and lost 3-0. The sets were 25-12, 25-11, 25-12.

Travis said Ehrke led as a well rounded player in both defense and offense. Senior Abby Mendoza has been serving tough. Juniors Ashlyn Wooldridge and Katie Williams lead in kills and hit percentages. Junior Betsy Myers, a reliable constant in the back row, has been passing well. Of course, volleyball is a team sport, so it is a group effort that wins the game. 

“We are a work in progress but so long as we show up each day, have a positive mindset, we will get better,” Travis said. ■
