The Kamehameha Schools Maui junior varsity girls volleyball team fought for their 2-0 win over the Maui High Sabers in Kaʻulaheanuiokamoku Gymnasium on Thursday, Sept. 28.

The jv Warriors have a 5-4 record in the season so far, and this is their third time winning against the Sabers.

“Tonight they played well. They communicated and talked well together; we have been working on that. Skillwise, they did good and did what we are supposed to be doing, which is practicing our system,” jv head coach Dukie Josiah said.

Catching the first point in their first set, the Warriors then went up and up with the Sabers.

Both teams were struggling with service errors, but the Warriors pulled through with a 24-22 lead, when freshman Noelani Kahoʻopiʻi ended the set, 25-22, with a kill shot.

In the second set, the Warriors started with a five point lead, which they were able to maintain. The set and match ended with a kill by freshman Sofia Stupplebeen and the score of 25-10, and the Warriors won, 2-0.

The two teams scrimmaged for a third set, in which the Warriors made the first point on a service error by Maui High. There was a 4-point lead by Kamehameha, but the Sabers caught up and when time was up for the third set, Maui High was ahead 12-11.

Coach Dukie said that he believes communication is something the Warriors always need to work on, and his players seem to agree.

“Something that we need to improve on is probably communication and probably just focusing more at practice,” sophomore Taylor Morita said.

The next game the jv girls volleyball Warriors play is against King Kekaulike High School at Kaʻulaheanuiokamoku Gymnasium, Tuesday, Oct. 3 at 4:30 p.m.
