SHINGLE SPRINGS – Ponderosa High’s varsity girls volleyball team hosted Rocklin Thursday, losing in three straight, 25-21, 25-13, 25-20.

The Lady Bruins struggled to put balls away on the attack, and succumbed to a formidable Rocklin offense. Junior Lauren Williams led the hosts with four kills, while senior Sarah Walker had three and Christine McDavid, Megan Jones, Kassie McGill, Nicole Banke and Kenna Davidson each contributed a kill.

Banke, Davidson, Walker and Taylor Yancey picked up serving aces while Davidson was perfect with her 10 serves.

Defensively, Walker led the team with a pair of blocks while Williams and McGill each had one – but the Bruins brought out 36 digs on the evening, topping Rocklin’s total by three. Davidson was the head of that department, finishing with 15 digs while teammate Paris Backston was just as impressive with her nine.

“We are a young team,” Bruin head coach Sheri Millhollin said. “We struggle with consistency and firepower to put the ball away.”

Banke and Yancey – both serving as team captains – are Ponderosa’s two setters. Running a 6-2 set, Ponderosa has the potential to be effective on the court, but struggled against a Rocklin squad that dictated the pace through all three games.

“Our setters are both great servers,” Millhollin said, “and have really worked hard on defense. Lauren Williams is doing a great job hitting and blocking for us as well. We just need to be more consistent, especially on our service receive to be successful in this league.”
