Women's Volleyball: Logan Report

Logan 1, Moreau Catholic 3
(19-25, 25-20, 14-25, 21-25)
The Colts played with a lot of heart and made a lot of great plays throughout the match. Unfortunately, there were some passing, digging, hitting and serving errors that proved to be costly mistakes. These uncharacteristic mistakes allowed Moreau to score some easy points at crucial times in Games 1 and 4, which ultimately cost JLHS the match. Go Colts!
Logan 3, Washington 0
(25-18, 25-18, 25-15)
The Colts came out strong in Games 1 and 2 and held 8 to 9 point leads in both games. Washington rallied back to make both games close (within 2 and 3 points respectively), but Logan pulled away to win each of the games. In Game 3, the Colts started off very slowly and were tied 4-4 before beginning to pull away due to solid passing, good digging and smart hitting.
The Logan Middle Blockers were very effective both offensively and defensively, showing that all of the drills in practice are starting to pay dividends in the matches. The rest of the team was very solid in all aspects of the game and showed off their ball control that is a hallmark of the Colts volleyball program. Go Colts!
Logan 1, Newark Memorial 3 (20-25, 23-25, 25-20, 23-25)
The Colts came out strong in Game 1 and held the lead for the first two thirds of the game before the Cougars stormed back to take the lead and win the game. Game 2 saw the Colts and the Cougars trade the lead repeatedly, but Newark Memorial was able to hang on for the win. In Game 3, the Colts built a significant lead and finished with a win despite a strong effort by Newark Memorial. In Game 4, both teams made numerous outstanding plays, however Newark Memorial prevailed as they sealed the victory to win the contest 3-1 and remain undefeated in MVAL matches.
Logan 3, Irvington 2 (25-19, 21-25, 19-25, 25-17, 15-7)
It felt a lot like a "Hot August Night" in the JLHS Pavilion on Thursday, however it was October 18th and it was an MVAL match to be remembered with the Colts winning the match 3-2. This win may end up being very instrumental as the Colts continue their quest to earn an at-large spot in the North Coast Section, Division I tournament at the end of the regular season.
Fellow NCS Division I opponent Irvington High School was led by Danielle Carothers with 16 digs, 11 kills, and 23 assists. Laura Hubacel had 29 kills and 2 blocks, and Nicole Ho had 20 digs and 3 kills for the match. This match drops IHS to 7-3 in the MVAL and 15-8 overall.
