ECVB traveled to Harrison on Wednesday. Varsity came up short.
This was our first game without senior libero Alex Disbro. She got hurt at the end of practice the night before, so freshman Laney Baker had to step in. While she did a great job stepping into some pretty big shoes, the team played without energy or enthusiasm the entire match. The leadership Alex brought to the game was missing. It seemed we were more focused on how to play without Alex instead of how to be successful with Laney.
They fought hard and didn’t quit. We had several girls out of their zone and it showed. They rallied behind Laney and encouraged her every step of the way. They could have just quit and decided their season was over, but they chose not to and that makes me proud as a coach!
After this match, varsity was 18-8 on the season.
