Hello Sports Fans,
Since the last post, the JV girls volleyball team has continued their strong season.
On September 18th, the Lady Caps welcomed Heritage to Holliday Gym scored a home victory 25-9 and 25-17. The game was well played and Caitlyn Cooley's strong serving was instrumental in the win.
September 20th, the Caps, still at home, faced the Wakefield Wolverines. In a challenging game with a lot of hard fought rallies, Broughton's JV girls managed to win in straight games again. 25-17 and 25-20.
This week, the Caps were still in action and good form with two more "in conference" matches. On September 25th, the Caps took it on the road to arch rival Sanderson and pulled down victory 25-13 and 25-22. As a loyal BHS alum, I say if you only win one game a year, make it against the Spartans! Way to go girls!
Today, the team was back on the road facing the Millbrook Wildcats. Not to digress, but if you only get to win two per year, make it Sanderson and Millbrook (or Cary)... In any regard, the Wildcats were really on their game, playing the JV team in a tough match. Game one was tight, but the Caps pulled it out from behind 25-23. Game two took a nasty turn with the Wildcats coming out strong and winning 21-25. Following the break, the Wildcats continued strong. Down 13-10, the Caps won a side-out then rallied eleven straight points on Marisa Bounpane's great serve. The team was able to close it out 25-15 and score the win.
The team is really having a great year. The fantastic turn around this team has achieved under the leadership of the coaching team is a great story. The JV squad is 13-2 overall and 12-1 in conference, a fantastic improvement over last year. Congratulations to Coach Enid Badillo and Coach Joy Daniel.
Also, we have had a good crowd of support for both the JV and the Varsity games. While understandably better at home, the support at home and away is appreciated, especially from the student body. The games are exciting, so come on out and support Caps Volleyball.
