If you have ever watched much developmental volleyball, you will know the games at the lower grades are pretty much dictated by the ability to serve.  This match was no different, however, the girls kept the games  exciting for spectators.  St. Clare took the first game 25 – 23 in a very close contest.

The second game was also exciting with a lot of back and forth bumping,  But St. Clare came out to an early lead and kept it going until they were ahead 20 – 10.  Holy Trinity rallied to 13-20 then 15 – 22.  Holy Trinity kept coming back.  Both teams were a little tense at the end of the second game which also became a factor.  St. Clare took it in the end 25 – 21 in a great fourth grade match.

Both teams will be fun to watch in the coming years.
