Hitting the road on Saturday, the varsity volleyball team traveled to Pomfret, CT for matches against Pomfret School and Convent of the Sacred Heart. Deerfield was able to win both matches, both by scores of 2-0.
We had a short warm-up before our match against Pomfret and it took a little bit of time once we were on the court to find our passing, setting, and hitting rhythm. A big service run from captain Daphne Gavros ‘22 helped close out the first set while the second set saw more consistent play from the entire team to help secure the victory.
Facing off against Sacred Heart, Deerfield’s hitting started to improve and while Sacred Heart’s good defense and intelligent hits kept the sets closer, Deerfield was able to pull out their second victory of the day.
Our next match is on Wednesday against a perennially strong Loomis squad; first serve is scheduled for 3:30 pm.
