The Carlmont Lady Scots beat the Woodside Wildcats in five tightly-contested sets Oct 3.

After dropping the first set 25-23, the Lady Scots came back and won the second set 25-20.  They then lost the third set 25-23 before coming back to scrape out a win in the fourth set 25-17 before dismissing the Wildcats 15-5 in the fifth to win the match.

Sophomore Jkhari Campbell said the game was “turnt up to the max” and said he could feel that the players were “bleeding blue.”

Coming into the game, Woodside and Carlmont were two of three undefeated teams in league play with Menlo-Atherton High School.  Now only the Lady Scots and Menlo-Atherton remain.

Sophomore player Alexis Morrow said the turning point in the game was “right after the first set” after coach Chris Crader gave a “great talk.”

Morrow also said that her team “pushed through” to win the game.

Crader said, “The league is clearly the best it’s ever been” and that his team is “starting to ramp up their play.”

According to Morrow, the Lady Scots started off slow because they let the fact that opposing player Christine Alftin had received a full-ride scholarship to play volleyball at UC Berkeley “get in their heads.”

Crader also said “Ella McDonough and Charlotte Jackman really stepped up” and “Alex Lay came in and served the heck out of the ball.”

Crader continued to say “the leadership from the seniors was great” and his team “fight like heck every night.”

This win will send the Lady Scots into the Battle of Belmont against Notre Dame High School on a high note.
