On Saturday, October 5 the Lady Ravens volleyball team bounced back from a tough five set loss to Olathe South, beating defending state champion Lawrence High and Olathe North.
Starting off the night with a much needed win, the ladies handled the Lawrence lions 25-22, 25-15. The Ravens had a great passing game as well as excellent execution by junior Courtney Jackson and senior Kaiti Parks.
This season the ladies have really been focusing on playing at a high level consistently so Coach Lenth preached that the Ravens needed to start off the next game strong. Listening to Lenth, the ladies started off with a 6-1 lead to North and kept going winning the game 25-13. Coming into the second set the girls came out a little unfocused but still handled North, beating them 25-20.
The ladies play next Saturday in Lawrence in their Round Robin. If you can’t make it make sure to come out to Buff puff Saturday night to watch each team of boys compete for the trophy.
