BIRMINGHAM — Sensing a run by the Rochester High volleyball team, Birmingham Seaholm senior middle hitter Lisa White put an end to that with her block in game three Oct. 9 at home.
White sent the Rochester shot back, giving the Maples a 9-8 lead in the third game and Seaholm never looked back.
The Maples won 25-16, 25-20 and 25-14. Seaholm outscored the Falcons 16-6 following White’s defensive play.
“They came out, took care of business, and now it’s time to go home,” Seaholm coach Heather Lippert said.
Seaholm traded points with the Falcons often in the early goings of each game, but its defense and precision shots proved to be too much.
“I thought we played great,” White said. “Our serve-receive came together nice. That’s been a little shaky in the past, and this time it really helped us.”
The win moves Seaholm to 3-3 in the Oakland Activities Association Red Division and drops Rochester to 1-4 in the Red.
Rochester coach Lauren Duquette, though, saw some signs that the team may have new life. The Falcons had three starters in the match that previously didn’t see much playing time, and Duquette was proud of their performances.
“They’ve been battling to get on the court so hard, and I’m incredibly proud of them,” she said.
The night also had a special meaning for the Maples. This was their third annual Alzheimer Awareness Night.
Each player wore a ribbon with the name of a loved one that has been affected by the disease and donations were given to the Alzheimer Association.
“We keep those people in mind while we’re playing, and it really motivates us,” White said. “When we’re playing, we think of them in the back of our minds that they’re fighting this horrible disease, and we want to win for them."
