First Wins for Girls Volleyball
By Rick Schonely, Sports Reporter
The Molokai Lady Farmers volleyball team got their first wins of the season last weekend on Maui when they took on the St. Anthony Trojans at War Memorial Gym. On Friday night, the Lady Farmers dropped the first set but then took the next three to defeat St. Anthony 3-1 (24-26, 25-14, 25-17, 25-21). On Saturday, the Farmers won 3-0 (25-20, 25-23, 25-17) to improve their record to 2-2 for the season. St. Anthony is 2-2 also.
Head Coach Mahea Rawlins was happy the team played well.
“We came back when needed to and the passers did a good job, the setters moved the ball around and the hitters attacked aggressively and were able to put ball away,” she said.
Molokai’s first home games of the year are this weekend as they host Maui Prep at The Barn Friday night at 730 p.m. and Saturday at noon.
Rawlins said she expects more from her team and is looking forward to this week’s home match.
“Basically, we just need to stay focus on our side of the court,’ she said. “We need to start strong and finish strong and eliminate the errors and adjust. We just have to practice harder in the upcoming weeks.”
