Decatur volleyball team edges out Colonels in first match of ’13

(Sept. 13, 2013) The Stephen Decatur volleyball team edged out the Colonel Richardson Colonels three games to two during last Friday’s season opener on the road.

The Colonels squeaked out a 25-23 victory in the first game and topped the Lady Seahawks 25-22 in the second.

Decatur took the third game in Federalsburg, 25-20, and won the fourth 25-11 to force a fifth game. The visiting Seahawks secured the victory, outscoring the Colonels 15-9 in the final game.

“While we lost the first two games, the girls played really well,” Coach Sarah Zimmer said. “Of course, there are things we can work on, but they were communicating, passes were good, and they looked confident and comfortable. I think the girls really wanted the win and [they] worked hard to get it.”

Senior captain Taylor Black had five aces and seven kills. Sammi Quilter, a senior, chipped in with 34 digs and junior setter Kayla Heinz logged 11 assists. Senior captain Katie VanBruggen contributed with seven kills.

On Monday, the Seahawks traveled to Ridgely to play the North Caroline Bulldogs. Decatur lost the match in three games: 25-14, 25-18 and 25-12.

“I thought the girls started out a little slow, a little flat. By the end of the second game, I thought we had picked it up a bit,” Zimmer said. “In Game 3, the girls looked defeated. North Caroline had good servers and a couple powerful hitters that we just were not able to adjust to and I think that frustrated the girls.”

Quilter had 15 digs and VanBruggen three kills in the loss.

Decatur will take a trip to Salisbury Monday for a 5 p.m. competition against the Wi-Hi Indians. Decatur took the third game in Federalsburg, 25-20, and won the fourth 25-11 to force a fifth game. The visiting Seahawks secured the victory, outscoring the Colonels 15-9 in the final game.
