With a season record of 10-5 as of Oct. 4, the girls volleyball team has gone undefeated for the past seven games. The girls have defeated some of the best teams in the state including Basking Ridge, Hunterdon Central, and North Hunterdon. The team recently defeated Hunterdon Central 2-1 on Sept. 25 despite a slow start and dropping the first set.

At the time of the game, two starters were due to injuries from a previous game against Piscataway the week before. Having just rained, the ceiling had leaked onto the court and because of this, athletic director Michael Davis had to stand on the sidelines with a mop. During the lead up to the game point, junior Morgan Krempasky slipped on a puddle they were unaware of and injured her ankle. She, unfortunately, had to miss a week. The team used their pained teammate as motivation and won the second set 26-24, and the third set 25-22 on a well-deserved killer spike.

The girls faced Bridgewater-Raritan on Sept. 27, and they dominated the Panthers with a score of 2-0. They had the ball soaring as they won a fifth of the points within the first ten minutes of play. By this time, the team was down four players, leaving only ten.

Bridgewater had to say goodbye to their star seniors from the prior year which in turn left them off their game. They did have their moments on the court, but they were short-lived for their goals of beating the Raiders were crushed by a kill done by junior Kaili Fitzpatrick.

On Sept. 29, the Raiders defeated Philipsburg 2-0 with ease. It was a nice way to end the week for they found it to be a game of serves and service points. The game was over in two sets with 7 aces, 32 service points, and 26 kills with a majority of the points being made by junior Jardin Jacoby and senior Lenah Chedid.

With only five games left in the season, the Raiders are sure to use their off-court chemistry and work ethic to end this month with a bang. The team has been through loses, pain, and success, but nevertheless, they have become a family. Regardless of whether they called the ball or not, they will always have each other’s backs on and off the court.
