The Wildcats huddle together after a point at home against Gaithersburg HS. The Cats won the game 3-0, extending their current 3-game win streak.

The girls’ volleyball team has received mixed results midway through the regular season. On Wednesday Sept. 27, they lost a five set match against Churchill, one of the best teams in the state and last year’s 4A state semifinalist. The Wildcats followed up that performance by getting swept by Sherwood, before bouncing back and shutting out Blair. They then went on to win their next three games, improving to a respectable 7-4 record.

Against Churchill, the Cats played valiantly against one of the best teams in the county and the state. There were several moments in the game where there were long rallies that both teams were able to keep in play.

“I think we played pretty tough at moments; Churchill is a very tough team to beat. I think the girls really stepped their game up, and played some really great rallies and played really tough today,” coach Jackie Krampf said.

The girls’ team realizes that although the game ended in defeat, they played hard.

“I think everybody played really well, we had a lot of really long rallies. Even though we may not have won the point we still played really well, and I think everyone should be proud of themselves,” senior Lilly Pickett said.

The Cats then traveled to Olney, where they would be swept at the hands of Sherwood, losing 3-0.

“The scores of the sets were pretty close, but I just feel like we didn’t have a lot of energy to begin with during the game. We kind of lost it throughout,” senior Maya Zutshi said.

Despite the loss, the Cats were able to rebound against Blair, winning that match 3-0.

“We definitely worked much better as a team, and the energy was there. And it was really strong, and I think that’s what helped contribute to our win,” junior Sofia Silberfeld said.

Following Blair, the Cats won games against Gaithersburg, Seneca Valley and Blake. They beat all three opponents by a score of 3-0, giving the Cats a current four game win streak, 12 set win streak and a 7-4 overall record. The Cats will look to keep the streak going away against Northwest HS on Thursday, Oct. 19.
