Lady Pirates split two sets with two Lady Tigers

by ELLIS KNOX

The Lady Pirates volleyball team defeated the Linden Kildare Lady Tigers three games to none. The first game went Lady Pirates 27 - Lady Tigers 24, second was Lady Pirates 25 - Lady Tigers 18, and third went to the Lady Pirates 25 - Lady Tigers 22. There were some rough edges on the Lady Pirates part but they played well. Their coordination was good and this seems to be a very athletic team. Those covering the net were very skillful and covered it well, the height helped. The setters were spot on and hitting was killer.
