The JV Cougars continued a strong start to the season with a decisive win over Pacific Bay, 2-1, on Sept. 4.
The match started with each team battling point-for-point until the scores were tied at 11. Then the Cougars broke away with some excellent serving, solid defense and a very high kill rate on offense. The Cougars wrapped up the set with a 25-15 win.
The second set was all about serving. Meagan Mitchell and Jasmine Standez went on a spree that denied Pacific Bay any kind of rally for most of the second set. And when an errant ball was sent back over the net, the Cougars quickly put it away. The Cougars finished the set and the match with a landslide 25-6 victory.
Serving standouts for the Cougars were Standez with a team-high six aces on 10 serves followed closely by Mitchell with four aces.
The Cougar offense was led by Mayah Johnson and Iris Grant each with four kills on five attempts, assisted by Joey Vetrone with eight assists. The defense was led by Conner Black with six digs followed by Mikaela Sendino with four digs.
