Taylor volleyball opens season with split

The Taylor volleyball team found its rhythm late into its second match of Wednesday’s season-opening doubleheader in Fullerton, California, rallying from an 0-2 match deficit to top William Carey in five sets, after falling to No. 18 Vanguard in three.

The Trojans struggled throughout the opening match at Vanguard, giving up a total of 36 points in the 25-13, 25-20, 25-17 loss with 20 hitting errors, 10 serving errors and six receiving errors.

Julia Pomerenke and Ryan Czerniak were two bright spots, combining for 14 kills and only two errors in 26 total swings. Samantha Korn scooped 13 digs, with Amanda Adams logging two aces and Kacy Bragg debuting with 10 assists and nine digs.

TU’s second clash of the day opened in similar fashion, with the Trojans still struggling to find their precision. Taylor fell 25-23 and 25-13 before storming back 25-22, 25-17 and 15-11 to pull out the victory over William Carey.

Taylor totaled 33 kills in the final three sets, with Adams producing a team-high 13 and Pomerenke adding 11 kills and five blocks. Korn and Jessica Dodane had 25 and 15 digs respectively, while Bragg and Abby DeSimpelare combined for 41 assists, 14 digs, eight kills and four blocks from the setter position.
