Athena had 3 position changes, with Erica making her Regional League debut as a setter, Sarah playing as an outside hitter and Kristy playing through middle. Despite some confusion every now and then, this lethal combination, combined with the great ability from all other players meant Ashfield didn’t stand a chance.
Athena slowly warmed up into their match against Ashfield Vipers on Saturday, but despite losing the first 5 points of the 1st set, we managed to claw our way back to victory winning the first set 25-23.
Despite it arguably being the hardest team we have faced yet, we went onto win the 2nd and 3rd set as 25-19 and 25-18 respectively.
Many of our frustrations came from a low ceiling which we weren’t used to, but with some cracking hits from Kinga and a great back court block from Kristy, we kept our heads held high despite the low ceiling!
Thank you to all players: Kristy, Alysia, Kinga, Rhetta, Sam, Erica, and MVP Sarah for the great game. 4 wins all defeating them 3-0.
