The Middlesex High varsity volleyball team suffered district losses to Mathews and West Point last week. The good news is the Lady Chargers raised more than $1,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

On October 15 Mathews downed the Lady Chargers in three games, 25-16, 25-14 and 25-17.

“We again were down with a starter injury, which definitely affects our team dynamics,” said Lady Charger coach Jennifer Harrow. “But, I’m very proud of my girls in that they didn’t give up. We had some great plays, but still need to work on consistency.”

Visiting West Point defeated the Lady Chargers in three games, 25-17, 25-17 and 25-23.

“We didn’t really start playing to our potential until the end of the third game and it was too late,” said Harrow. “Chelsea Hall and Sarah Ann Goodrich had some great hits and Austen Taylor Dozier came in with some great setting,” Harrow noted. “Beth Eanes and Lauren Bleeker picked up a lot of balls throughout the match.”

“Play for the Cure”
Harrow thanked those who donated to the raffle to raise funds for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. She thanked River Birch Gifts for the breast cancer awareness bracelet; Gloucester Pharmacy for a flag, wind chime, and the various breast cancer awareness items including a bear, a shirt, a scarf, a key chain and bracelet; Deltaville Market for a $50 gift certificate; and Jessica Morris for her homemade scarf.

“I’d also like to thank all of the players and parents who helped sell raffle tickets and made baked goods,” said Harrow.

MHS will host King and Queen on Tuesday, October 29, in their final home game of the regular season. The JV plays at 6 p.m. and are followed by the varsity at 7:30 p.m.
