The Tigers hosted Modesto’s Central Catholic High on Monday, Oct. 1, and fell to the Raiders.
Central Catholic won it 3-0 with scores of 25-7, 25-7, 25-13.
“We definitely didn’t play our best,” said Patterson coach Tarah High. “We are still fighting our nerves and doubting our abilities as a team. We are going to start focusing more on becoming more consistent in our defensive play.”
Bailey Boschi had a kill, four assists and four digs for the Tigers (1-4 WAC). Emma Dallimore had five digs, and Mele Tupouata had four digs.
Nagging problems with inconsistency were Patterson’s downfall Sept. 26, too, as the Tigers lost to Ceres High on the road in three games, 26-24, 25-16, 25-17.
“We started out really strong but lost our focus,” High said. “We were able to see how well we play the game when we get a pass, but how much we struggle without that defensive edge.”
Kiara Job led the Tigers with five kills. Boschi tallied eight assists, and Dallimore had nine digs.
The JV Tigers suffered a 2-0 defeat at Ceres High on Sept. 26 (25-23, 25-17) before beating Central Catholic High of Modesto 2-0 at home Monday (25-23, 25-17).
