Home Sports VOLLEYBALL: Into the setting sun, Eagles will soar again

VOLLEYBALL: Into the setting sun, Eagles will soar again

A final game for Princeton volleyball may not have ended in a victory of points, but the team won the hearts of the fans who were on their feet by the end of the game. The senior night was one to remember although the final score of 3-0 did not reflect the game play. 

“(Paradise) has a great team,” said Anthony Peters, Princeton’s volleyball coach, who gave credit where he said credit is due. “They have two great outsides, and that was just kind of the difference tonight.”

The home game against Paradise Adventist Academy on Thursday might have ended better had the Lady Eagles started off with the passion that the game ended on. 

The first set ended with Princeton down 25-13. 

The Eagles got their head in the game by the second set, ending with a narrower gab of 25-20.

The Cougars from Paradise had to earn the third set, 25-23, before they were to go home with a win. The final blow was decided by the referee that had to decide on a ball that landed very close to the line. Ultimately, the decision was out of bounds and in the Cougar’s favor.

“That last set was a fight and that was the epitome of Princeton volleyball,” said Peters. “Grinding out rallies and make it in; keeping pressure on people and making them make mistakes.

Eagle Karissa Lutz had a good game serving, and went on a run during the middle of the second set. Both setters, Jaqui Reynoso and Diana Medina, were able to get a lot of good kills from the outsides. Peters gave a shout out to key player, Vanessa Chocotecco, with her many digs. 

On Thursday, the team bid farewell to four of their seniors that had been leaders for the rest of the team. 

Peters said he has spent his first year as coach working on the team’s identity. Peters has been building a solid foundation and working towards team cohesiveness, making some tweaks during the offseason. 

He added, “I think our brand of volleyball is grinding. We’re just going to apply pressure and just be a defensive team and then just go from there. I think we got that.”

Compared to last year, this season did not have a drop off in wins. The Eagles can boast about great victories, such as the match in Greenville or the very competitive Hamilton Tournament. 

“It wasn’t as if we were going to hang our heads and then sheepishly fade away into the night,” said Peters. “They fought until the very, very end.”■
