The Kamehameha Maui girls volleyball team emerged victorious yet again with a score of 3-0 against the Maui High Sabers, making this their fourth consecutive win of the Maui Interscholastic League season. The match against the Sabers took place on Saturday, September 5, at Ka’ulaheanuiokamoku gymnasium.

Compared to their last match against King Kekaulike, the girls started off a little slow.

“Whenever we have a big, emotional game, you don’t [want to] have a let down, and…we didn’t have one, and so that was good,” Coach Bala Spencer said. “We had a slow start…kind [of] a sluggish start. But once the ball control came, they did exactly what they wanted to do.”

The first set ended with a fairly close score of 25-19 with KSM in the lead.

During the second set, the Kamehameha girls started off strong with a 9-0 point lead; However, the Sabers steadily increased their score and lessened the gap in the point differences. Towards the end of the match, the scores went from 19-10 KSM, to 20-15 KSM, and then to 22-18. The final score for the second set was 25-20, putting the Kamehameha girls volleyball team at 2-0.

The Kamehameha girls also won the third set with a score of 25-12, ending the match for the evening.

According to Coach Bala and Kaira-Lee Davis, they prepared specifically for the match against the Maui High Sabers.

“They have a lot of lefties, which you don’t really see in the MIL,” Davis said. “So that is something that we worked on during practice. Blocking left hand and picking up left hand serves.”

Davis had the most kills of the match–12.

It feels good [to have the most kills],” Davis said, “but I couldn’t do it without my team. Props to them.”

The girls’ next match is against Lahainaluna High School on Friday, September 11.
