- Ladies Second Scrimmage is also a Rollercoaster
The second scrimmage also was a rollercoaster, but not in the same way as the first scrimmage. This one started and ended with big disappointments which sandwiched some very exciting Volleyball action. The first disappointment was the fact that the opponent (Norristown) never showed up, and the ladies had to scrimmage against themselves. After Andrea's JV team beat Krista's JV Team in 2 games, the Varsity ladies started play against coaches and several other players. The ladies played very well and won the first 2 games and were leading in the third before the second disappointment. The West ladies were really into the game diving and digging and hitting some really nice balls, when Nicole Rowe made an unbelievable save on a ball next to the stands. Unfortunately, Nicole did not get up and somehow injured her knee. Nicole, hope you get well soon !! Next up for the ladies is a Tournament on Saturday at Liberty H.S.(Directions) , Please note: We still need volunteers for Snackbar duty. It really doesn't hurt !!

Looking back on it, showed the three teams they played were pretty decent Teams.(Notre Dame, Freedom and Burnt Hill) The last place finish moved them into the Silver Division of the Tournament where things started to turn around. The girls went 3-3 in the Pool splitting with each Team. The last of the 3 Matches was against the eventual winner Carlisle and we had lost the first game. They had to win the last game to finish in a second place tie to enter the playoffs. With Carlisle looking like one of the best teams it looked like a tough task but the girls came through with a big win. This win put them into a tie-breaking playoff game against Tioga. The Ladies came up big again in defeating Tioga and entering the Semi-final playoffs against the tough foe Burnt Hill who had defeated the Bucks early in the morning.
