The Woodland volleyball team lost a pair of matches Thursday night at Allatoona, falling to the host Buccaneers and to McEachern — both in straight sets.
Woodland’s Grace Webb had a kill and three blocks in the Lady Cats’ 25-4, 25-11 loss to Allatoona.
“We played with low energy and without focus most of the night,” said Woodland head coach David Condon. “We found some rhythm and showed better effort and focus in the second set against McEachern, but it was too little, too late. Our habit of starting sluggishly and trying to fight back is detrimental against good teams. Both of these teams tonight at really good, especially Allatoona.” “We are going to have to work harder in practice,” added Condon. “We missed Emmalee Cigainero in our rotation tonight. She has been out sick. Her absence in not really an excuse for our lack of effort and focus, but it did hurt us as far as cohesiveness is concerned.” Lauren Morris had three aces, 15 assists, and a pair of digs in the Lady Cats’ 25-11, 25-22 loss to McEachern. Sydney Molinaro contributed nine kills, seven digs, and an ace. Webb added six kills, three blocks and an assist.
