Mountain View vs. Loveland: Rival Volleyball Game

Mountain View student section anxiously awaiting the next point.

Excitement was high Thursday night (August 31st) as Mountain View High School and our rivals, Loveland High School, faced off in Mountain View’s first home game of the season. A quote from one of the varsity players discussing who will win,“Mountain View because Loveland has a lot of new team members and [they] lack intention.”
The student section was filled with students sporting their bright neon clothing to show support towards the Mountain View varsity volleyball team. The coach had some words of encouragement with the girls before the first serve, leading the team to a successful start.
Mountain View started strong, scoring the first point and three more, exciting the Mountain View student section. Loveland closed the gap quickly after, retaining a steady lead for the rest of the set, ending with 25-18. Hopes were still high for Mountain View when the second set rolled around. However, it ended with Loveland ahead for the second time with a score of 25-13.
By the third set, Mountain View lost steam and drive, compared to when they started. Loveland was in high spirits and ended the game in three sets with a final score of 25-8. A varsity player stated some of the team’s weaknesses were “getting in our heads easily” as well as “when someone loses energy, it affects everyone.”
Mountain View had a tough loss against Loveland but they still have more games to play and room for improvement. Be sure to wear some tropical gear and support our lions at their next home game on September 21st.
