Moffat County Volleyball pushing through tough season
Losing can wear on a team’s spirit, but it doesn’t seem to affect the Moffat County High School volleyball team. That could mean better results are on the horizon. After a 1-7 start to the season, the Bulldogs played three games last week, and went 1-2. It started with a three-set loss to Coal Ridge Thursday, 25-12, 25-7, 25-19. That had head coach Sandy Camilletti disappointed. “We could beat them,” Camilletti said. “We gave up too many big runs. Our goal is not to let a team score more than three points in a row. We give up runs of seven or eight in a row, and it’s killing us.” Surrendering extended runs to the other team is a problem Camilletti has noticed all season. In the rally scoring system of volleyball, giving up several points in a row can be difficult to recover from in a set.
