Roulier tallies 20 points as Bulldog spikers beat Wildcats

By Joe Naiman

Ramona High School’s girls volleyball team scored a 94 points, including points scored on errors by Wildcat players, in its four-game win Sept. 13 at El Camino. Ramona junior Abby Roulier scored 20 of those points.

Roulier had 11 aces and added nine kills. She served 17 times during the match.

“She just really had a tremendous amount of serving, so we earned points off of her serve, not just aces,” said Coach Connie Halfaker.

The Bulldogs won the first two games by 25-21 and 25-12 scores before the Wildcats prevented a sweep with a 25-19 triumph in the third game. Ramona closed the match with a 25-14 victory.

“It was a very competitive match,” Halfaker said. “It was a hard fight.”

Halfaker cited the quality of El Camino’s play and noted that she was not disappointed with the Bulldogs’ loss in game three.

“The game they won, they earned it. We did not fall apart,” she said. “I consider it a real good win for us.”

Halfaker considers Roulier’s serving aces to have played a major role in Ramona’s advantage.

“That’s quite a run,” Halfaker said. “That’s just aces. That doesn’t count the amount of points we got on her serves.”

Roulier’s nine kills led the Wildcats in that category. Mikayla Derochie led the team with three blocks in the four games, and Halfaker also cited the defensive contributions of Julie Vorhes and Jennah Hickle.

“We’re happy with the focus, the enthusiasm, just the desire,” Halfaker said of her team. “They all-out played. It was just really good to see.”
