In the third game of the 2019 season, Shaler Area Girls JV Volleyball came away victorious from a match at Fox Chapel High School. Much like our second game of the season, the girls came out strong thanks to aggressive and well placed serving by Lauren Grenesko, Danielle O’Connor, and Payton Junker. Shaler would take an early 8-1 lead and would benefit from solid team passing and defense to win set one 25-8. Fox Chapel was able to regain the momentum and started off set two by going up 10-1, but once Shaler settled down and once again – Payton was able to 9 straight points ( 7 aces) and bring Shaler back to a 10-10 score. From that point on it was back and forth with Shaler pushing ahead at the end and winning 25-22. With this win we are now 2-1 overall and in the section.
Payton Junker was a strong presence tonight with a MVP like performance for the JV team: Total… 8 aces…. 4 kills…and 8 digs.
Other impressive serving stats: Cloe Wohlgemuth 3 aces and a 71% point ratio & Danielle O’Connor with 2 aces and an 80% point ratio.
