PUKALANI – The junior varsity volleyball girls emerged victorious against the Seabury Hall Spartans tonight, winning both sets with identical scores of 21-15.

The freshman and sophomore girls were proud of their win.

“We’re doing pretty good as a junior varsity team that hasn’t been playing as long as they [the varsity] have,” freshman Kahea Andrade said.

The Warriors had a  good start, upping the score to 3-0 in the first few minutes. The score ping-ponged between the two teams, tying the first set several times until freshman Ka’ala Corpuz made a kill, taking the score to 11-10 helping to get her team back on track and gain a more comfortable lead.

Corpuz proved to be a great asset for the Warriors, as she achieved several kills and aces throughout the courses of the two sets.

Kelia Nesmith, sophomore, was also a standout player in the game as a setter. Her sets allowed many spikes by the opposite and outside hitters on her team.

“We’re coming together more as a family,”  freshman Hi’ilei Aniban said. “We’re trying to work in the [school] theme, he ‘ohana kākou, and that seems to be working for us…That’s how we got the points.”
