Helias survives for win against Waynesville
Tuesday, August 28, 2012
It’s amazing what 24 hours can do to a team.
One night after passing the ball with ease, the Helias volleyball team found things a little bit tougher in the Lady Crusaders’ home opener.
However, they were able to overcome their struggles enough to carve out a 25-16, 25-19 win over Waynesville at a sweltering Rackers Fieldhouse.
“Our serve-receive (Monday) night at Sedalia was really, really, really good. Here, it wasn’t,” Helias coach David Harris said. “I’m not making excuses because Waynesville had to deal with it too, but it was hot in here and the girls’ arms were probably sweaty. Still, we practice in here all the time.
“But a lot of it was we weren’t moving very well, we were just kind of standing and reaching, which makes it really difficult to pass.”
