On Oct. 3, Breast Cancer Awareness Night, the Davis High women’s volleyball team honored breast cancer patients by sweeping the Grant Pacers. Davis won all three sets through stellar playing and great teamwork.
The starting players for DHS were seniors Addison Lyons, Karlie Kijanka, Mitra Varjavand and Sam Moore, junior Claire Bachand, and sophomores Emily Perry and Maraia Tuquiri.
The game started with Moore’s strong serve, resulting in a point for DHS. Through teamwork, the score quickly increased to 12-3 Davis.
“[The team] did really well with lots of good kills and passes,” sophomore Mia Gladding said.
Kijanka served the ball, resulting in an intense passing war between the two teams until Davis scored once again.
With more great teamwork, the girls got the score up to 22-6 in the middle of the first set. Soon, the set was over with a winning score of 25-10 for DHS.
The second set began with Moore serving the ball. She and her teammates quickly scored multiple times until the score rose to 6-0.
Moore and Kijanka then scored simultaneously and raised the score to 8-0. By the end of the second set DHS was up 25-5.
In the third set, Tuquiri started off by serving and scored.
Next, the Pacers received the ball and tied the game at 1-1.
After a quick succession of passes, blocks and serves by the girls, the score stood at 25-12 and Davis swept Grant in a successful game.
