The varsity Lady Scots dominated the Terra Nova Tigers in three sets on Nov. 4, ending their final home game of the season with great energy and evident passion for the game.

Tips from junior Alex Lay and senior Lauren Tierney in the first set allowed for Carlmont’s early lead. The Tigers exercised great defensive blocking, however, and brought the score 15-13 Carlmont. Through strong kills by junior Mia Hogan and quick dives from junior and libero Erin Alonso, the Lady Scots won the set 25-13.

The second set of the night was too close for comfort, with neither team being one to two points within each other’s score for the entirety of the period. With solid defensive blocking from players such as junior Alexis Morrow and Terra Nova’s own faults, Carlmont was able to pull through the set 25-23.

The Lady Scots worked together and, with energy, took the third set. All players contributed to the final score of 25-22.

Carlmont’s varsity volleyball coach Chris Crader has watched the team grow and flourish over many seasons. “The girls upped their level today. We fought real hard and worked together with a great spirit,” said Crader.

The final home game is usually a significant yet serious one, but the team managed to laugh and encourage each other throughout the night.

“The team had a lot of fun and supported each other through the sets. The girls brought their game,” said parent Janelle Lay.

The victory had more weight for seniors like Alyssa Espiritu, who will not be returning to play another season of high school volleyball.

“This season has had its ups and downs, but I feel like as it’s continued, we have improved,” said Espiritu. “This was the perfect way to end my last home game at Carlmont. I love my whole team, and we really played like a family.”
