Coach Romine | Oxford 8th Grade Blue
On Wednesday, February 12th, the Oxford 8th grade Blue volleyball team played their first official match of the season against Scripps Middle School. They played very competitively and won all three sets to win the match. Leading servers were Jennifer Earls, Zoey Siglow, and Korinne Ihrke with several ace serves between them. Korinne Ihrke played incredible defense as our Libero making several great passes and many great digs. The team's middles, Grace Viviano, Bella Rushlow and Halena Knight commanded the net with with several great tip and hit kills. Great hits cannot happen without great setting by the setters, Savannah Bailey, Keira Billis, Avery Felix, and Nevaeh Latvis. Great job girls!!!
