Volleyball: Lee v. West Potomac – October 2, 2012

Submitted by Lee Volleyball

Lee won a thrilling five-set match against the visiting West Potomac Wolverines, 25-19, 25-19, 19-25, 21-25, 15-13. The Lancers got off to a fast start taking the first two sets relatively easily, thanks to the steady setting of Fernanda Rojas and Jazlyn Alexander, the senior leadership of Yasmin Alexander and Sophia Okorn, the continued improvement of Hayley Knapp in the front row – paired with the back court passing and serving of defensive specialist Lindy Willer. Lee lost some momentum and the next two sets as West Potomac changed their attack, rolling shots to the corners and tipping to the middle. That set up the deciding fifth set. Lee got off to a very strong start, leading 6-1 and 13-7 before tightening up and allowing the Wolverines to tie the set at 13. Yasmin Alexander led the offense with 12 kills. Sophia Okorn had 8 kills and 2 blocks. Hayley Knapp tapped down five kills from the middle and had 4 solo blocks. Lindy Willer led the team with 6 digs, while setters Fernanda Rojas collected 11 assists and Jazlyn Alexander had 8. Despite the letdown in the middle of the match, the coaches feel like that was Lee’s best overall performance of the season. Next, the Lancers travel to Mt. Vernon on Thursday.
