Volleyball Girls Looking For Rhythm, Victories
A tough week of competition saw Escalon’s varsity volleyball girls go 0-2, picking up a couple of games but unable to win a match.
They were at Pitman for a Tuesday, Sept. 1 contest and lost by a 3-0 decision to the host Pride. Escalon got stronger and played with more confidence as the match progressed, but could never get past the Pitman home court advantage and are still looking for just the right line up to put on the court. Scores were 10-25, 18-25, 20-25.
In a Thursday, Sept. 3 game hosting Tracy, Escalon outlasted the Bulldogs in a 27-25 opener to the match, but then saw the visitors come back to win the match with three straight winning games, 14-25, 18-25, 14-25.
Oakdale was scheduled to travel to face Escalon on Tuesday, Sept. 8 after The Times went to press and a busy preseason slate continues for Escalon this week, with matches against St. Mary’s on the road Thursday, Sept. 10 and then the varsity will play in the Golden Valley Tournament on Friday and Saturday, the JV team goes to the Oakdale Tournament on Saturday, Sept. 12.
