Watkins Mill varsity girls volleyball will look for their first win this Tuesday when they take on the Poolesville Falcons at home. They had a rough 0-4 start to the season, losing close games to Clarksburg, Quince Orchard, Walt Whitman, and Walter Johnson.

The Wolverines are still searching for their first victorious set after losing 0-3 against the Walter Johnson Wildcats yesterday. It was a tough road loss but the team continues to bond together and improve their team play.

The lady ‘Rines suffered a devastating loss on Monday, losing 0-3 against the Clarksburg Coyotes. Throughout the course of the game the girls showed improvement, scoring double digits in the third and final set of the match.

The two teams both faced pressure as the student sections created a booming environment. Orange Nation came out with force, pushing the team on with a black out, but even this was not enough to bring our Lady ‘Rines to a victory.

Over the weekend, the team visited the Quince Orchard Cougars, leaving with another defeat, 0-3, on Friday.  It was the team’s first home game and they will look to build upon it in time for their next game at Watkins Mill on Tuesdady.

Communication seemed to be an issue for the team and they are looking to improve it among themselves. “If we [get rid of] our mistakes in the game, we would of done better,” junior Kati Hruska said. “We need to work on communicating more.”

It was a tough start to open the season for the Wolverines, losing their first game on the road against the Walt Whitman Vikings, 0-3. “We were a bit nervous in the first set but the second set was amazing,”  junior Yekeila Mendez said.  “We did well as a team.”

It was their first game under new head coach Matthew Quinn and the relationship might take some time to get used to.  Junior Daad Gabbani said, “[Quinn] is good at supporting us and cheering us on.”

Hruska is keeping her head up for the season. “I have to focus on the present,” Hruska said. “I cannot be thinking about the next game when I have to be working on today.”
