Volleyball Report: Cabrini nets first win; Warren Easton fights off Salmen
After a disappointing 0-3 start, many might question whether Cabrini is a team to watch, perhaps even a contender in Division II. Doubters may want to reconsider any skepticism about the Crescents.
Cabrini posted its first win of the season in impressive fashion, winning at home over always tough Dominican 25-20, 25-12, 25-15 Monday.
Atira Jells led the way with seven kills, three aces and three blocks for the Crescents (1-3). She was aided by Jennifer Brue, who dished out 30 assists and by Rachel Sensebe, who drilled seven kills. Hope Laila and Endia Buck had 13 and 12 digs, respectively.
When you consider that Cabrini’s three losses came to the state’s two best Division I squads, Mount Carmel and St. Joseph’s Academy, along with a very good team in Archbishop Chapelle, it is safe to say that the Crescents remain a force to contend with.
Cabrini hits the road to face a very formidable opponent in E.D. White Catholic today at 5:30 p.m. while Dominican (6-4) returns to action this evening at home against John Curtis Christian at 5:30 p.m.
Warren Easton overcame Salmen 25-17, 12-25, 25-21, 25-17.
Tailya Gray led the Eagles (5-1) with 11 kills, Alexis Augustine had five kills, Demonye Hayes had four kills and Kaytla Gutierrez added three kills. Makaya Taylor dished out 10 assists.
Easton, whose only loss was to Dominican, returns to action Thursday at Sci Academy at 5 p.m. The Eagles defeated Sci Academy in straight sets at home on Aug. 31.
Salmen (2-9) returns to action today at Landry-Walker at 4 p.m.
