The gym doors of Skutt Catholic were opened to the Aurora Huskies’ varsity volleyball team as they took on the SkyHawks in the first match of a three-match tournament. Skutt Catholic swept the competition, winning two games in a row out of three.

The beginning of the first set showed a close scoreboard, with a back-and-forth tie game. At one point, the Huskies developed a small lead on the SkyHawks, though it was short-lived as Skutt Catholic came back and won the first set 25-19.

The second set showed a bit more intensity. With multiple long-lasting sets, the determination could be seen on the faces of players of both Skutt Catholic and Aurora. Near the end of the set, the score came within a three-point difference, the SkyHawks just one point away from winning the match. With a few impressive and close saves, the SkyHawks were able to snatch that last point and win the match by a score of 25-22.

The SkyHawk varsity volleyball team is already looking at ways to improve on their journey to state. “We can work on defense which is a huge part of this game but we have great terminators in the front row,” said head volleyball coach Renee Saunders. “They’re an awesome group. They work super hard and they have a ton of potential,” Saunders continued. As the season goes on, the SkyHawks will continue to build up their skills and hopefully come back to win yet another state title.
