The Sailors 8th grade team battled neck and neck with the Margaretta Polar Bears, enduring their first loss of the season in two games with scores of 23-25 and 23-25. The team fought through a 3-10 deficit in game one to pull ahead with serves by Maddie Taylor and great defensive plays by Hannah Brletic, Maddie Stout and Rachael Lapka. The Polar Bears returned service earning 3 additional points making the score 15-18, until Gracie Starcovic stepped to the line sinking 4 in a row. Although the team played as one and gave them a good run, Margaretta just barely pulled ahead for the victory. Game two was much of the same as the Sailors and Bears battled the whole game. Margaretta pulled through in the clutch taking the second set and the match. The Sailors travel to Perkins to battle the Pirates on Monday September 10 beginning with 7th grade at 4:30.
