It might be cliche and obvious, but volleyball is team game.
Without good loft from the setters, the outside hitters are unable to get good looks. Without good serves, the whole tempo is upset from the beginning of the play.
Good teamwork is important in all sports, but especially in volleyball. And MacArthur put on a dynamic display of team play Tuesday in a three-set sweep of rival Eisenhower, 25-10, 25-17, 25-12 at Highlander Gym.
Eisenhower showed some promise in the first set, keeping things close with good return play. The score was tied at six before Mac ratcheted up the pressure. Behind Tamera Thomas’ serving and Carmen Torres’ kills, the Highlanders rattled off 17-straight points en route to a 25-10 win.
The second set proved to be a tougher fight, as the Eagles were able to land a few kills to get the score to within 13-12 at one point. But once again, strong serves by Torres, as well as tricky balls played in by Makinley Kennedy and Abigail Weeden were too hot for the Eagles to handle.
