The Richmond Hill volleyball team picked up a win after a forfeit by Glynn Academy Tuesday night before falling to host Savannah Country Day.
The Wildcats and Terrors split the first two sets, with Richmond Hill taking the first 25-17 and losing the second 20-25. The Wildcats were leading 3-1 in the third set before a disagreement between the head referee and Glynn Academy saw the Terrors pack up and leave, according to Richmond Hill Coach Taisa Tremble.
“The team has really started to find their rhythm and move well defensively,” Tremble said. “Communication and offensive execution was much more seamless than it has been previously.”
Veronica Hermanns had four kills and two blocks, while Chloe Allen had three blocks and five aces. Alexis Sena added four blocks.
The Wildcats then lost 17-25, 20-25 to SCD. Mackenzie Petermann had six kills, three blocks and five digs while Bailey Gillespie added four kills and five digs.
“The girls fought well against Savanna Country Day, but had more errors than we should have,” Tremble said, adding that the Hornets had a stronger defense than the Wildcats had seen previously.
Last week Richmond Hill defeated Statesboro 25-22, 26-24 and Trinity Christian 25-11, 25-12.
Petermann had 14 kills, seven blocks and eight aces on the night, while Allen chipped in six kills and five aces.
The Wildcats, now 8-7, face Windsor Forest and Savannah Arts Academy at SAA Thursday night.
