The girls volleyball team played at home tonight against the Jeff City Lady Jays. Though JV and varsity both lost their matches, their efforts proved a step in the right direction.
The players “made a significant improvement in what was going on in the court over the Ozark match a few nights ago,” Head Coach Robin Sherman said.
The varsity game was split into three matches. In the first match, RBHS led by seven points at the buzzer and finished on top, 25-19. The Bruins played strong in the second match but lost 25-22.
Going into the third game of the match, the Bruin girls held onto their hopes, but halfway through they were still behind, 18-12. Despite their plans, the match ended with a 25-15 loss.
“The hope is that we’ll continue building and learning from the losses and mistakes,” Sherman said. “I know it’s hard to lose, but [they] have to take everything that [they] did well tonight and do that again the next time, only adding to that.”
