Dreyfoos celebrates a point in their win against Port St. Lucie High School.

The Dreyfoos Jaguar volleyball team’s momentum continued with a three-set sweep in a home game against Port Saint Lucie High School on Sept. 20. The Jaguars are now 5-1 and second in their division, trailing Suncoast Community High School.

“Our confidence was over the top, over 100 percent,” volleyball coach Dana Pallaria said. “We need to just keep on the momentum and working as a team to keep [our] wins.”

The Jaguars got off to a quick start with a 25-10 victory in the first set and then a 25-15 victory in the second set. The team went on to win the third and final set by a score of 25-13. Last year, Port Saint Lucie took the game to five sets, but this year Dreyfoos was able to come back.

“It feels great, the whole team played well and we all worked together and just had a fun time,” communications junior and volleyball captain Chantel McMillan said.

McMillan led the way along with visual sophomore Paige Duffack and theatre junior Riley Russell. Early in the third set, Dreyfoos found themselves in their biggest deficit of the night as Port Saint Lucie took a three-point lead. After rallying back to tie the set, the team kept up the pressure and never looked back. The culminating moment of the third set was after a few tense volleys from both teams which eventually led to McMillan saving the point with a last second dive. Even though the team had an easy matchup in the game, players still believe there is room for improvement.

“We did really well on defense. I would say we got a lot of balls up that I didn’t think we could get up,” McMillan said. “We can improve our placement of balls and just not make stupid errors or hit balls out and just control more.”
