Passing continued to be a struggle for the Trojans who dropped a conference contest in three sets earlier this week. South Tama travelled to Williamsburg for a WaMaC Conference Contest on Tuesday, September 19. The Raiders swept the Trojans 25-20, 25-18 and 25-20.

Another struggle this season has been the health of the team. The Trojans have been without junior captain Katie Riha since night one of the season due to an injury. Gwen Upah is now out as well as Destinie Johnson who suffered an injury prior to play on Tuesday evening.

"Injuries are not in our favor right now," said Amy Dolash, "I've got quite a few girls out between JV and Varsity and unfortunately we had an unexpected one tonight."

Dolash moved Morgan Haughey and Morgan Woosley to Varsity last week to give the Trojans more depth for last Saturday's tournament. Haughey played middle for the team on Saturday and according to Dolash did well.

Naturally the girls experienced some nerves due to the new comers to the Varsity lineup. Communication suffered slightly as the girls tried to figure out their court coverage area.

"We are trying a couple of different thing (with the back row). If it doesn't work out and doesn't get us where we need to be we are trying to see if one person's strength is a little bit better in a certain position than the other. They are all good passers but we are trying to find that right rotation that will start translating for us," Dolash said.

The Trojans showed improvement in endurance on Tuesday. After dropping the first two sets they came out in the third set and even led for brief moments. Ultimately momentum was with the Raiders who finished the night with a 25-20 win for the sweep.

Madison Rohach had a solid performance for the Trojans. She led the team with 7-24 kills, had 10 digs and was 15-15 from the serve line.

The Trojans will be hosting their home tournament starting at 9 a.m. this Saturday.
