Women's Volleyball Serving Up Defeats

The women's volleyball team is back with a vengeance.
After a rocky 1-9 start, the team has been on a hot streak, taking three out of its last four matches.  Coach Sean Fisher thinks that the wins were crucial for the team's momentum.
"The two conference matches last Saturday was huge for us, and for us to make the playoffs we needed to win, which was the right step forward," Fisher said.
The Hornets (4-10) beat Green Mountain, Castleton and Johnson, all with scores of three sets to one.
Even with this strong spurt, Fisher acknowledges the struggles in the initial stages of the season.
"In the beginning it was hard, only having four veterans on the team," Fisher said.
Coach Fisher is also well aware of the improvements the women are making.
"We played a lot better; we're still making errors, but far less errors," Fisher said.
Freshman outside hitter Kayla Cormier knows exactly why the team had an abrupt turnaround.
 "We communicated more on the court; we learned our strengths and weaknesses in each other, not just ourselves," Cormier said.
The beginning of the season was more of a communication issue.
"We didn't know how to work with each other as we were trying to make ourselves better instead of the team as a whole," Cormier said.
The Hornets next match is a triple-header away match Saturday against University of Maine- Presque Isle, University of Maine-Farmington, and University of Maine- Fort Kent.  Their next home match is Monday against Johnson at 7:00 p.m. in the Stannard Gymnasium, before they close the season with two matches at home next Saturday against Husson and Maine Maritime.
