The Middlesex Lady Chargers varsity volleyball team is working together as a team, said coach Gina Villano.
And this teamwork showed with a thrilling 5-game victory over Lancaster on September 16.
The Lady Chargers started off strong against the Red Devils, winning the first two games, 25-21 and 25-19. Lancaster, however, regrouped and won the next two games, 25-16 and 26-16 forcing a fifth and deciding game, which Middlesex dominated 15-6.
“We really played hard to win the last game,” said Villano. “We really are beginning to look like a team.”
The Lady Chargers JV and varsity volleyball teams traveled to Colonial Beach on Tuesday, September 23, and will have a home match against Conference 42 for West Point on Tuesday, September 30. JV games begin at 6 p.m. and are followed by varsity games at 7:30 p.m.
