Junior Taylor Kelley goes in for a kill in a match against Central Catholic.

Junior Kaitlin Inganna led the Lady Wildcats with a mere four kills and the team didn’t record a single block as they were dropped by the Holy Trinity Tigers in three sets Wednesday night, 25-13, 25-18, 25-8.

“I don’t think we had much confidence going in,” Inganna said. “Coming off MCC beating us, we were really psyched out beforehand; we were just hoping to keep it closer.”

The team recorded just two aces, and committed 18 attacking errors and seven serve-receiving errors.

“We were bad, really bad defensively,” Inganna said. “That’s what we’ll work on in practice: limiting aces, getting blocks, and hitting angles.”

On a more positive note, freshman Luisa De La Hoz had 11 assists and the team didn’t commit an assist error.

The Lady Wildcats fall to 8-9 on the season and drop below the .500 mark for the first time since Sept. 18.

The team continues play next Tuesday, Oct. 3 when they travel to the Brevard Christian School gymnasium and take on the Brevard Heat, who the Lady Wildcats thumped in three sets just a week ago. Varsity play starts at 6:30 p.m., following the junior varsity match, which begins at 5:30 p.m.
