Tigers challenge No. 5 Wapahani

ALEXANDRIA – Wapahani invaded The Jungle of Alexandria for a matchup of two state-ranked teams in girls volleyball and walked away with a 25-21, 16-25, 25-19, 25-22 win to take the match 3-1.

The Class 2A No. 7-ranked Tigers (15-8) fell behind by eight points (20-12) in the first set before winning nine of the next 14 points, but the deficit proved to be too much as they dropped the first set 25-21.

The Class 3A, No. 5 and defending 2A state champion Raiders had the momentum going into the second set, but Alexandria thwarted that by scoring 19 of the next 29 points to take a 25-16 win to even things at 1-apiece.

The Tigers hung tough in the next two sets but weren’t able to overcome the power strokes of Wapahani.

Raiders’ first-year head coach Jared Richardson said that he knew after Alexandria knocked off Southwood that his team would have its hands full.

“They beat Southwood Saturday, so I knew they would be a little bit of a formidable opponent for us – that they would give us a run,” he said. “I thought they did a great job of digging balls. We were hitting some powerful shots – getting in front of them. They contained everything inside the court.”

Richardson said he didn’t know what to expect coming into The Jungle, but he walked away happy with his team.

“Like I said, I didn’t really know what to expect, but I’m happy with the result,” added the Raiders’ coach.

Despite the fact that the Tigers don’t have much depth, coach Jeff Harmon said that he was proud of the fight that they showed against their Delaware County counterpart.

“They fought through the whole thing,” he said. “We’re just a team that doesn’t have any depth. We’ve got girls that play JV that come up to varsity, we’ve got three of them, they get a lot of playing time. We’re a young team, so we have to play near perfect to beat good teams.”

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.
