first_imgThe EC JV and Varsity volleyball teams traveled to Southport on Saturday. Both teams faced Tri-West and Indy Lutheran in pool play and then Indy Scecina Memorial in crossover. The JV team came home with the championship, while varsity finished 2nd in pool play and then won the cross over to finish 3rd overall.EC VB vs Lutheran (8-22)EC VB vs Scecina (8-22)EC VB vs Tri West (8-22)It was a great day for us. The loss against Lutheran makes it seem a little less successful than it really was. We fought every point of every match. Both Tri-West and Lutheran were long matches that went point for point and we were pushed to 3 sets in both.Our biggest struggle right now is the mental aspect of volleyball…making good decisions in pressure situations. We lost too many points at the end of a game due to our own mistakes.Ultimately, that’s what lost our match against Lutheran. They were a strong team with a big front row, but we competed with them until there was no other option but to score a point. In those situations, we lacked mental strength.‘Overall, I am very pleased with how the invitational went. We have put a lot of focus on passing and getting the ball to our setters. We could not have passed better than we did Saturday. As a team we only had 4 serve receive errors all day. I am very proud of our back court and hope they continue to live up to the standard they set this weekend.’  Trojans Coach Cassie Laker.Next up- all three levels will face Rushville on Tuesday at EC starting at 6pm.
