(Oct. 6, 2017) Stephen Decatur Coach Sara Patrick said her volleyball players needed to go into Monday’s game against the Parkside Rams focused and mentally tough.

“Skill only gets a team so far, and heart and the desire to win are what win games,” she said prior to the match.

The Lady Seahawks took the first game in Salisbury, 25-15. They edged out the Rams 25-18 in the second game and 25-19 in the third.

“The girls played well. Other than too many missed serves, the team played solid, consistent volleyball tonight,” Patrick said. “The team moved their feet, communicated well and finished the point.”

Senior captain Piper Connors tallied six aces, eight kills and two digs. Junior Grace Beres chipped in with three aces, 12 assists and four digs. Junior Adriana Serpe had three aces, five kills, three assists and three digs.

“This win was a big goal for us … We are still trying to make a run for the Bayside [Conference] South [top spot],” Patrick said. “I am very proud of how hard they worked to make this win happen.”

Decatur will face another Bayside South competitor, the James M. Bennett Clippers, on Monday at 5 p.m. in Salisbury.
