Fans applauded as seniors Adriana Defty, Angelina Leigh, Stephanie Siu, and Lyndsay Chambers were escorted across the old gym by their parents, given blue and white flowers and leis by their fellow teammates, and congratulated by their coach during senior night on Oct. 25. Not a bad way to end the season at home, winning in just three games: 25-19, 25-18, 25-15.
With both solid offense and defense, DHS women’s varsity volleyball was able to dominate Monterey Trail, winning the Delta Valley conference title.
Senior Lyndsay Chambers finished game three with a spectacular winning hit, ending the game 25-15 and winning the match. This was just one of her many impressive offensive plays throughout the game.
“[Our] kills and hits were some of our strongest moments,” Chambers said.
Sophomore Maya Gilardi also hit very well throughout the game, by scoring a hit that left DHS just one point away from winning game one, 25-18.
Game two was clutched with more solid hits from junior Zoe Hunt-Murray, senior Angelina Leigh, and Chambers.
Coach Julie Crawford felt that the team played with a lot of momentum and enthusiasm, which led to this victory.
“We dominated them from the beginning,” Crawford said. “I was very proud.”
Crawford also believes that the team’s strong serving from the start helped to seize the win, clearly seen in the multiple aces in each of the games.
Game three ended with a strong score of 25-15. Chambers hit a lot of aces that lead to this triumph.
Senior Angelina Leigh started the game very strong offensively, and continued this momentum throughout.
“We stayed really consistent,” Leigh said.
Leigh is very satisfied with the way the season had turned out, and is sad that it’s almost over.
“I wouldn’t want it with anyone else,” Leigh said. “It’s going to be really sad saying goodbye.”
