ATHERTON: The Wolverines lost a close battle, 16-25, 25-20, 23-25, 25-16, 4-15, to Morrice at home Tuesday.

Laura Morgan had 11 kills, seven digs and five aces, Janessa Rivera added seven kills and two assisted blocks and Rachel Morales 12 kills, 10 digs and three aces.

“This was a tough one to take today,” said Atherton coach Chuck Vierk. “We played well for the most part but losing the way we did in the fifth set really left a bad taste in our mouth. We know that we can play much better than we did, but we made too many errors down the stretch that hurt us. I know the ladies are not happy about this, but we have no choice but to move forward and keep pushing ourselves to be better.

“Unfortunately, this game was very important and we know we let this one get away from us. But that is why we play the game! We have to learn to finish those matches to take the next step in being a very good team. We will learn from this and grow as we move on. The season is coming to a close and we want to pick up our intensity and focus as we head down the stretch. We will be better from this and grow in the right direction.”

Taylor Crane totaled five kills, three digs, 18 assists and one ace, Alexis Morgan tallied 26 digs and two aces and Taylor Rowan two assisted blocks, two digs and 15 assists. KayLynn Chilton picked up four kills, two digs and two aces, Abby Newsom had 10 digs and one ace and Isabella Platman seven digs.

The Wolverines swallowed a 15-25, 11-25, 25-27 loss at LakeVille last Thursday.

Platman had three digs, Newsom tallied four digs and an ace and Chilton chipped in with two kills, one solo block, one dig and two aces.

With three assists was Rowan, Alexis Morgan racked up 18 digs and one ace and Crane one kill and eight assists. Morales came up with seven kills, one assisted block, seven digs and one ace and Laura Morgan two kills, four digs and three aces.

“Last night was a rough game overall,” said Vierk. “We just did not look like ourselves out there and it showed in the first two sets. We did not communicate well and overall did not play well. The third match we finally played with some energy and had a good showing.

“We have to learn how to close out games because we had our chances in the third set to pull ahead and win but we faltered right at the end. This was a much-needed game for us because it allows us to recognize that we need to keep working and growing as a team and that we, even though we are mid-way through the season, still have areas to grow and get better at. We will learn from this and come back stronger.” – B.P.
