Leicestershire Volleyball League
Wednesday 12th December 2018
Leicester Athena 0 PVC 3
The local league team put up a good fight against a very experienced PVC side. Athena started with Ioana and Charlie setting, Alex and Anna as middle hitters and Nikki and Adela as outside. The match flowed back and forth on serve but PVC started to pull ahead through their middle players, Tereza and Rachel. Their experience, height and skill level as too much for Alex and Anna who are still only just learning their role.
In the second set, Kasia replaced Nikki and showed some excellent movement at first. Once more, the middle hitting from PVC was key as they pinched point after point. For the final set, Emily came on as part of her volleyball education.
As mentioned before, this is a very inexperienced team with a number of players in only their first or second season of playing volleyball, so putting up such a good fight against a PVC side that can boast players of considerable experience and skill showed that they are all progressing well. Charlie is learning quickly as a setter, Kasia has improved immensely over the past 12 months and each player can point to improvements they have made.
