Porter's defeated Westover today with a solid 3-0 win. On defense, Charlotte Whalen '20 covered the back row chasing the ball and had several serve-receives, while Tyler Smith '20, Maddie Penalver '21, and Julia Dowd '20 took several digs and passes. Along with that, Susie Sun '20 and Alexia Cusano '20 covered the net aggressively. Catherine Thompson '18 and Dowd '20 had a few long serving runs, but Penalver '20 had by far the most with both four and five in a row in the second and third sets, respectively. On offense, both Dowd '20 and D'Vine Straughter '21 had several kills, most of which could not have been possible with the precision of Thompson's '18 sets. Watch us take on Loomis on the 30th in the Crisp at 3pm!
