The Gulliver girls’ volleyball team shut down Coral Springs in three consecutive sets 25-19, 25-23, 25-19 on Wednesday afternoon.
Rookie Caro Mengotti led the Raiders with six kills, an ace and eight digs.
“Caro jumps great and she’s been doing a good job at putting the ball where we need it,” said Gulliver coach Ed Potter.
Stephanie Potter registered 13 digs, followed by sister Lauren, who had 11 kills.
“Lauren has a bright future ahead of her and Stephanie has improved a lot,” Potter said. “Service was much better in this game, we played very well; the girls went really solid on defense and hitters improved.”
Although the team has a 10-2 record this season, players are still determined to work on some key elements on the court.
“We need to improve our serve receive, but its getting better. Offense is fine, but we need to remain in system, we don’t do well without it,” coach Potter said.
The Raiders next face Ransom on Friday at 2:30.
