The Rockbridge County volleyball team hosted Parry McCluer Aug. 30. This was the home opener for the Wildcats. They entered the match after a hot start to the season, having already beaten PM, Fort, and having a successful day at the Fluvanna Invitational. 

The first set concluded with a 25-13 victory for the Wildcats. This set was important because it set the tone for the game. Senior right side hitter Sophia Perlozzo led the squad in this set as she contributed four spikes.

Rockbridge carried the momentum into the second set. Led by strong serving from the entire squad they were able to keep PM off balance. These strong serves led to a set point by senior middle blocker Maddie Dahl. The set ended in a 25-10 score.

Rockbridge finished the sweep with a 25-23 victory in the third set. This was a key game to get the momentum headed in the right direction for the rest of the season.

Senior setter Mckenzie Burch reflected on the game.

“It was nice to be able to get a big win in front of our home fans. Everyone contributed to the game plan and we are looking forward to the rest of the season,” said Burch.  

Prior to the start of the game, senior libero Nala Shearer was honored for her 1000 career digs that she achieved in the 2022 season.

The Wildcats are now 8-1 and their next game will be against Broadway Sep. 7.
