The middle school volleyball team ended the season with a 2-0 loss at St. Timothy’s Monday in the Capital Area Middle School Conference tournament. The sixth seeded Warriors fell 25-8 and 25-21 to the third seeded Titans to finish the season 6-4. “St. Timothy’s is a tough team and served very well,” said coach Miriam Leshnock. “We battled back in the second set (when it was 22-10) and made it close. I’m proud that we competed until the end. We had fun and the girls improved a lot over the course of the season.”

The middle school volleyball Warriors split two home matches this week, winning 2-0 over Cary Academy Tuesday and losing by the same score to Magellan Thursday. St. David’s completed the regular season with a 6-3 overall record and are 4-3 in conference play.  “We played well against Cary Academy and we were better than the scores (25-13, 25-13) indicated against Magellan” said coach Miriam Leshnock. “Magellan is undefeated and very talented. I thought we competed well with them.” The Mariners will be the top seed in the upcoming CAMSC tournament. SDS will know their seed after Wednesday’s conference meeting.

The middle school volleyball Warriors swept Wake Christian 26-24, 25-18 for a 2-0 road victory Thursday. SDS is 5-3 overall and 3-3 in conference play with one week left before the tournament. Grayson Woody led the Warriors with 12 service points. Margaret Batchelder served five straight points in the second, while Samantha Leshnock served the last five, including an ace to end the match. St. David's hosts Cary Academy Tuesday and Magellan Thursday to end the regular season.

The middle school volleyball Warriors won their third straight match, 2-1 at St. Timothy’s Thursday.  St. David’s prevailed 25-17, 23-25, 15-11 to raise their record to 5-2 overall and 3-2 in conference play. “It was a battle all the way against a tough opponent,” said coach Miriam Leshnock. “We didn’t miss a single serve in the first set and had only four for the match. We played solid throughout and had plenty of opportunities to run our offense.” Samantha Leshnock led the Warriors in kills, while Kyra Parker had the most service points. 

The middle school volleyball Warriors came from behind to defeat New Life Camp 2-1 Tuesday at the St. David’s middle school gym. SDS dropped the first set, 25-21, then rallied to win the match, 25-20 and 15-11 against the local homeschool organization. “We had solid serving in the second and third sets,” said coach Miriam Leshnock, whose Warriors are 4-2. “We fought hard against good competition and pulled it out.” Samantha Leshnock served five straight points, including three aces to clinch the second set win, while Kate Manning wrapped up the match with four straight serve points with an ace for the win. Manning and Leshnock led the Warriors in kills on solid sets from Kyra Parker and Mimi Petersen. St. David’s resumes conference action Thursday at St. Timothy’s.
