Rachel Mathison goes for the shot. She led the warriors with 12 total kills in the match.

Monday night the lady warriors volleyball team ran into an unexpected test, according to coach Laura Stegenga.

Steinbrenner traveled half an hour to Wesley Chapel to play the Wiregrass Ranch volleyball team that finished last year with a 12-13 season and ranked 323 in the state of Florida. Steinbrenner was ranked 52.The final scores of the night were 25-17, 25-21, and 25-18.

“We have a lot of improvements to continue to make, I think we came into this situation underestimating Wiregrass,” said Stegenga, “If your not taking the game seriously then your obviously not going to perform well in the game either.”

Steinbrenner has gotten straight set wins in both games this year, but Stegenga says they could be doing much better if there was more effort and focus.

“I feel like the mental part of the game is one of the most imp0rtant parts” said Stegenga

“We got a little bit in a slump but we pulled out in the end like we know how to play,” said junior Rachel Mathison, the leading offensive player from the Sickles game, she kept it up going 12-26 on kills against Wiregrass.




Steinbrenner’s next game is at home against Leto (592 in the state), Wednesday at 7:30 PM.

  1. So are the only two school sports volleyball and football? There’s swimming, cross country and golf too. Everyone deserves recognition.
