Raptors start strong with win over So. Cal.

Ridge View, ranked 11th in the state in class 2A, opened the volleyball season Aug. 21 with a 3-2 road win over South Central Calhoun County. Game scores were 25-14, 25-19, 16-25, 19-25, 15-13.

“This was a tough way to start the season, but we found out what we're made of right away,” noted coach Monica Brandhorst. “We still need to eliminate unforced and mental errors, but overall a great match by our girls. So. Cal. has an excellent setter that caught us off guard numerous times and a couple of aggressive servers that caught us on some big runs. It almost cost us the game.
