In the varsity game, Amador Valley boasted a complete roster of year-round players who were poised and confident and whose strong suit is consistency. The Patriots threw everything they had at the Dons, but it wasn’t enough.
The JV game was a hard-fought match filled with exciting defensive plays. The Patriot service execution translated into a big win in the second game of the match. The team served a total of 56 times and committed only five service errors, a significant improvement over past performances.
The varsity also had a tough time on the road March 2 against Monte Vista, losing 0-3, but the JV won 2-0. The varsity team has a wealth of talent still in the process of solidifying balance and consistency. The JVs played some inspired rallies, distributing the ball well on offense and handling everything Monte Vista threw at their defense. But service errors undermined their attempt at a comeback.
