Volleyball continues its absolute dominant streak against the competition. The girls have improved their record to 10-0, remaining undefeated.

On Oct. 10, the Patriots played their biggest game of the season against their rival, the Churchill Bulldogs, Senior striker Elizabeth Hsieh and junior Itaxso Ezcurra-Taganides both had seven plus kills to help the Patriots pull through. Senior Stephanie Gene and senior NYU commit Chloe Hum each had three aces to help carry the team to 3-0 sweep of the Bulldogs. The Patriots ended up recieving a yellow card for excessive celebration after a hyped point. “The turnout was great and the team was really consistent. Overall I’m really proud of how we’re progressing throughout the season,” Hum said.

On Oct. 3, the Patriots played a division game against the Walter Johnson Wildcats. Hum and Hsiesh throughout the game both had great digs and saves to keep the ball alive. Senior Natalie Tai and sophomore Giselle Kleinbussink were acting like a brick wall as they stuffed multiple balls on the net, not allowing the Wildcats to spike it. The game was back and forth until the girls won the point to take the second set, which resulted in a huge momentum shift for the Patriots. The Patriots ended up winning the game 3-0.

On Oct. 7, the Patriots travled to BCC to take on the Barons for another important division game. The Patriots controlled the game from the start, and never let off the throttle. They swept the Barons and won 3-0 again. “Even when we’re not playing as well as we can, we always pull through because of how well we work together,” Brick said.

The Patriots are absolutely unstoppable this season. “As a fan, it is really fun to watch the volleyball games because they are so intense, but also because the girls are so good,” senior Andy Ram said.
