I have received the same message as several of you regarding items
from BSN Sports that still have not come in. I also ordered sweats that are back-ordered so I do understand your frustration. These items were available
when we selected them, otherwise we never would have chosen them in the first
place. Several of you have e-mailed me asking what to do and I will leave it up
to you. Although we would like the girls to match for traveling, if the sweats
aren't in until after our season is over, it seems silly to wait for them,
unless you just really want them. If you would prefer to take the refund, go
for it. If you want to wait just so you have them, its fine. There will
obviously be no "punishments" for wearing the wrong thing if your
daughter doesn't have the item.
On a side note, thanks for filling the volunteer slots for this
evening. It is going to be a great night! BEAT CENTRAL!
On Saturday, the Irish traveled to Worthington Kilbourne to participate in the Wolves annual tournament. When all was said and done, the Irish walked away with a third place finish on the day, beating Centennial and Kilbourne, but losing a tough match to Grove City. Below are the game stats from MaxPreps:
Even though the Lady Irish were able to sweep HIlliard Bradley during the 2013 season, the Lady Irish were happy to have the first match of this season against the Jaguars on their home court. The Irish were ready for a battle as Bradley has been known as a volleyball powerhouse of the past several years. In set one, the Irish jumped out to an early 5-1 lead with Chelsea Ray serving the first four points. Varsity combined for seven kills and two aces on their way to a fairly easy 25-18 win. Taking nothing for granted, the Irish returned to the court ready for a fight. Within the first five points of the match, Karina Akutsu and Maddie Wilcox combined for two huge blocks. Elo Agbaike, Lillie Wilcox, Maddie Wilcox and Lauren Parrott added 9 kills. Set two ended with two consecutive service aces by Elo Agbaike for a final of 25-9. Set three would be an equally dominate performance. The Irish won game three by a score of 25-7 on a day where Scioto led every point in the match!
Congratulations to Ashlyn Leon (Libero - Jr) for being named player of the match!

The JV team hit the court Tuesday night again the Jaguars of Hilliard Bradley ready to redeem themselves. After losing both matches last year, the JV squad saw this as a rivalry match that must be won. Set one was a back and forth affair that saw ten tie scores and eleven lead changes. Maddie Duhl had two service aces while Alexis McQuaid contributed two kills. Alex Sopher was on fire with five kills and an ace. Maggie Capel sealed the deal with a game winning service ace to make the final score 25-22. In game two, the Irish dominated. Edan Jones served 13 straight points, 4 of which were service aces. Libero Karie Harter had two incredible point saving digs while Sopher, McQuaid and Capel teamed up for 5 kills. The Irish went on to sweep the Jaguars by a final score of 24-13.
The Freshmen squad had a successful night as well. They beat the Jaguars in three sets 25-18; 24-26 and 25-21.
