The Lady Raiders Volleyball Team hosted the Lady Rebels from Roncalli High School on Tuesday night. The Raiders fought for three hard sets but couldn’t quite find the wave and surf to a victory. The Raiders started off slow in the first set, but fought back and tied the game but came up short in the long run, losing 25-21. In the second set the Raiders fell to Roncalli 25-12.
Cardinal Ritter looked to bounce back in the third set, but after a hard battle the Raiders fell short and lost to the score of 25-22.
Offensively, the Lady Raiders were led by Evie Diagostino with 9 kills, while Grace Armbruster had 8. “Going Back To” Callie Waites distributed the ball all around earning 23 assists in the process. Jenna “Pure Athlete” Purichia anchored the defense digging up 22 balls, while Maria Adolay and Brooke “Ain’t No Bologna” Belloni each had 12 digs.
The JV Volleyball Team lost to Roncalli in 2 sets. Rhonnah Alo lead the team with 4 kills and Megan VanGheem had 2 aces.
The Lady Raiders will look to bounce back with a dominating performance as they travel to Heritage Christian High School to battle with the Eagles.
