Top servers: Ella Fledderman: 15/16 with 6 Aces and Katie Johnson: 11/14 with 4 Aces. It was a quite impressive start of the season for our very young team with only 2 7th graders there tonight and 5 6th graders. The girls learned quite a bit from this opening match.The 8th grade team defeated Greendale (8/19) in 2 sets with scores of 25-18 and 25-20. Two main things that stand out about the 8th grade team: they play well together, and they don’t get down on themselves when errors are made; they simply learn from their mistakes and move forward to the next point. Top servers: Molly Gregg: 22/22 with 7 Aces; Ella Fledderman: 15/16 with 1 Ace; and Erica Kathman: 8/10 with 2 Aces.St. Nicholas will be back in action next week when they play St. Michael’s on Monday, Mt. Carmel on Tuesday, and Milan on Thursday.Courtesy of Trojans Coach Debbie Gregg.
