The McNary High School varsity volleyball team had one loss and one win last week, and it was the win that showed how far the team has come.
“The girls have learned not to play safe – we have really come a long way from our first few games. When the team plays fearlessly we can do a lot of great things,” said Kellie Scholl, McNary head coach.
The win came in McNary’s battle with McKay High School. When the two teams met in first week of Central Valley Conference play this season, it was the Royal Scots who walked out of the gym with a win in five sets. This time around McNary turned the tables.
The Lady Celtics won 3-2 on the road in a contest where the scores got closer in each successive set. McKay won the first set 25-15, McNary took the second set 25-18, the Royal Scots rebounded to take the third set 25-20, and the Celtics edged McKay 25-23 in the fourth set. McNary took the tiebreaker 15-12.
