The Antioch girls varsity volleyball team had a tough loss against Grayslake Central on Tuesday, September 19. 

The first set started with a battle between both teams volleying for each point. Senior Amanda Rowe was able to have consecutive hits throughout the set, while senior Brianna Vettese had many important digs throughout the set. However, the Rams came out victorious from the first set with a score of 25-17 due to their clear communication on the court.

“We need to work on communication and our attitudes in the game,” junior Grace Weber said. “We did well with serving tonight.”

The second set opened with sophomore Cenie Frieson’s solid serves and great digs. Weber also retaliated back with hard cross court hits and unbreakable blocks . However, the Sequoits had a miscommunication at point 15, which lead to Grayslake Central’s Maya Shnitzler rebounding with an ace serve. The Rams completed the second set with a winning score of 25-16.

“It was a really tough game but I’m proud of how we played and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the season turns out,” senior Grace Lockefeer said.

The girls varsity volleyball team will be attending the Harvard invitational at Harvard at 8:30 a.m.
