Falmouth High School’s four-match win streak was brpught to an end by visiting Notre Dame Academy on Tuesday, October 5, at the Antonucci Field House. The Clippers, who had been running red hot of late, fell to 6-5 as the Cougars scored a sweep.
Falmouth played well but NDA has been one of the better teams in eastern Massachusetts this fall, and it showed exactly how good it can be in a 25-17, 25-17, 25-19 win.
While the Clippers did not win a game, they hung around in each one. Coach Ernie Holcomb said that senior Sydney Sevigny was the best player on the court for his team as she defended and attacked well. Meghan Robbins, Haylee Silvia, Maci Griesbauer and Camille Leite all had strong outings. Leite led the team with 10 assists in the match.
“We played well as a team and played together and keep improving with each game,” Holcomb said.
The squad combined to collect 14 assists, 16 kills and 11 aces overall.
FHS will host Cardinal Spellman on Friday, October 8, at 5:30 PM. The game should serve as a good barometer for how far the club has come overall since the early stages of the season. Spellman won an early September match by a 3-1 score.
