(Sept. 27, 2019) The Stephen Decatur volleyball team got off to a slow start, but the Lady Seahawks picked up the pace to win in three games over the Pocomoke Warriors on Monday in Berlin.

“They were slow to get going, but came together as a team toward the end of the first game. Our serves and serve receive were good,” said Decatur Coach Sara Patrick.

Decatur outscored Pocomoke 25-18 in the first game. The Berlin squad earned a 25-7 victory in the second and came out on top, 25-5, in the third.

Senior captain Jaclyn Gallagher had nine aces, three kills and 10 assists. Senior captain Summer Vorsteg chipped in with four kills and three aces, and junior Taylor Barrett added four aces and four digs.

“We are 4-2 now. We have some tough games coming up – Parkside next week and Bennett the week after,” Patrick said. “The team has the best defense we’ve had in a few years. We are still working on strengthening our offense. I’m proud of the hard work they have put into the season so far.”

Decatur will travel to Salisbury to play the Parkside Rams on Wednesday, Oct. 2, at 5 p.m.
