King’s-Edge­hill School’s women’s var­sity volleyball team took on the Cen­tral Kings Ga­tors Nov. 5, with one win and two losses.

KES won the first set, with a score of 25-19 and CK took the other two, win­ning 25-17 and 15-8.

KES coach Kar­lee Sin­clair said this has been the team’s best year so far.

“The girls have been work­ing hard and we cer­tainly know how to push a game to a third set,” Sin­clair said. “Al­though the sea­son ended for us at pre-re­gion­als on (Nov. 6), the team has prac­tised tire­lessly and al­ways gives 110 per cent.”

Sin­clair said the team has fo­cused mainly on serve re­ceiv­ing and get­ting a good pass to the set­ter over the course of the sea­son.

“Our big­gest ar­eas of de­vel­op­ment have def­i­nitely been our pass­ing and serv­ing skills,” she said. “The girls have grown ex­po­nen­tially, and they con­tinue to show great progress with each prac­tice.”

Sin­clair said Sofia Jara’s serves re­mained con­sis­tent and strong through­out the sea­son and Hidemi Sato was a solid libero for the team, mak­ing fan­tas­tic digs.

Ni­cola du Toit also per­fected her tim­ing in the mid­dle po­si­tion and was able to slow down mul­ti­ple at­tacks from CK.

“It’s al­ways great watch­ing the girls play and rise to any chal­lenge they are con­fronted with,” she said. “I’m proud of their suc­cess this sea­son.”
