Tonight's match was a testament to what determination can accomplish.  Fresta's Middle School Volleyball showed that they were ready for our little Yellow Jackets by putting the pressure on through out two sets of PURE VOLLEY BATTLE. For game sets 1 and 2, Fresta was leading most of the match by a few points, until the end.

These Lady Jackets were not having it! In set one, the group rallied around each other and took the win.  The second set looked about the same, except the Jackets were trailing by at least a few points.

The Jackets warmed up for their first conference game later this week by hosting Trinity at Mountain View who play a division higher in Division 1. The most exciting play was in the first half when Somto Ogah scored a great goal from a fast build-up to pull the score back to 1-2 after Trinity had taken a 2 goal lead. The tie was evenly balanced with R-MA holding their own and JJ Banek-Gabelle giving a commanding performance in goal. Trinity were awarded a penalty before half-time after an unfortunate handball in the area.
