Prep volleyball team battles hard

(Sept. 20, 2013) The Worcester Prep volleyball team battled hard, but the Lady Mallards came up a bit short this week during matches with Greenwood Mennonite and Holly Grove.

On Monday, the Mallards took a trip to Greenwood, Del. to play the Flames. Greenwood won 25-16, 25-23 and 25-22.

“We had numerous serve receive errors and errors with our serving also,” said Prep Coach Karen Hammer.

Claire Stickler had one ace and two kills and fellow senior captain Bethany Wolpin tallied three aces, one kill and one assist in the loss.

The next day, the Mallards went to Westover, Md. to take on the Holly Grove Eagles. Hammer was pleased with her players’ performance despite the team falling to the Eagles 25-21, 25-14 and 25-19.

“Everyone [was] playing together as a team,” she said. “Even though the scores for each game were not as close as Monday’s game, the girls played well and continued to fight for each point.”

Prep freshman Karlie Southcomb logged two aces, two digs and five kills. Junior Cecily Sass had two aces, one dig, four assists and a block. Wolpin chipped in with three kills, three assists and three digs.

“Bethany inspired her teammates [Tuesday], as she played the match with an injury” and she continued to dig and play to help the team, Hammer said.
