On Thursday Jan. 4 The Lady Spikers opened their club season. With their regular season ended, they are looking to improve over the winter and stay in touch with their skills and each other.

The  seventh grade teamed played Claysburg; they won with scores of 25-17, 25-20, 25-14. Later that night the eighth grade team played West Branch but lost with tight scores. To end that night the ninth grade team played Hollidaysburg and came out victorious with the scores of 25-20 ,25-14.

Although the teams won their games , they are always looking to improve.

“ At our last game I thought we did pretty good and we worked well together, but there is always room to improve,” ninth grader Anna Batrus said.

“ I thought we had a good run but we need to work together more to improve,” seventh grader Niya Perez said.

The club season also prepares the girls for their regular season.

“ I like club season because it helps us keep touches on balls so we don’t lose our skills,” said Batrus.

“ Club season is nice , because you can keep up with rotations and your position,” eighth grader Kaylee Smith said.

Batrus has played for the Lady Spikers for four years and enjoys the sport.

“ I enjoy the intensity on the court and getting to work together with my team to improve,” said Batrus.

The players enjoy post season because it gives them a break, and they can work on technique.

“ Club season is not as demanding and it’s fun because you get to bond with your team again,” Smith said.

“ I get to work on my hitting technique and steps to improve for regular season,” Perez said.

The teams play every Thursday at St.Rose.
