Tough Volleyball Season For Westbury

It’s been a difficult season for the Green Dragons’ girls volleyball team this season. In last Wednesday’s battle of the dragons at Levittown, Westbury lost to the Division Blue Dragons in straight sets, 25-11, 25-10, 25-6. This marks the twelfth consecutive loss for Westbury, which has been winless all season.  

This showdown against Division High School, a squad that has won all of their games, did not make it any easier. Westbury was no match for Division, who clinched the conference title after their win. Their impressive service display proved to be an enormously challenging task for Westbury.  The Blue Dragons managed to complete 23 total aces. Amanda Pataky contributed a large part to their victory with four aces, five kills and one block.  Westbury also had trouble maintaining possession of the ball. The majority of points were scored from one or two hits.  The match lasted for only 45 minutes.

Westbury’s coach tried the best he could to keep the squad composed, calling multiple time-outs during the match.  While the team may have been winless so far, it’s obvious they still enjoy the game, and time spent with teammates.  Westbury had their last game of the season Oct. 29 against Carey High School. n for the Green Dragons’ girls volleyball team this season.  In last Wednesday’s battle of the dragons at Levittown, Westbury lost to the Division Blue Dragons in straight sets, 25-11, 25-10, 25-6.  This marks the twelfth consecutive loss for Westbury, which has been winless all season.
