TRIPOLI - The Crestwood volleyball team opened its season on Thursday, Aug. 24 by losing to Sumner-Fredericksburg and Tripoli at Tripoli High School in two hard-fought matches.
Sumner-Fredericksburg down the Cadets in two games, 25-20 and 25-15. Tripoli defeated Crestwood in two games, 25-7 and 25-16.
Crestwood Head Coach Robin Gossman said the Cadets need to show solid improvement as the season progresses.
“I thought the matches at Tripoli were poorly played by us,” Gossman said. “To be brutally honest, our team did not represent Crestwood the way I thought they would.
“The competition was great, but we played lazy defense, and the offense never had a chance because defense creates offense. We needed to serve aggressively, and we did not. Once we understand the difference between aggressive and passive, we will be a different team,” Gossman said.
The Cadets will host Waverly-SR on Sept. 5, and they will host the Kepros Tournament on Sept. 9 at 9 a.m.
