With the help of senior Sally Espinosa, the Mills volleyball team is finishing their season with flare.
Espinosa, an outside hitter, helped Mills compete in a tough match against William Jessup last Friday, Oct. 30. She achieved a double-double during the game, meaning she scored 10 or higher in at least two statistical categories. Hitting her best percentage of the season, a clip of .229%, Espinosa earned 11 kills on 35 attempts, and committed only three errors in a four-game match.
Defensively she earned 10 digs and posted two service aces, making Espinosa the first on her team to accomplish this feat this season.
The next day, Oct. 31, the Mills team played a home game against Simpson University where Espinosa came back strong in competition with nine kills on 38 attempts, seven defensive digs, and five errors, hitting .105%.
Coach Susan Forbes said Espinosa is one of the most competitive players on the team.
“Sally’s energy and enthusiasm for the sport of volleyball is contagious,” said Forbes. “You can’t help but play your best when playing next to Sally.”
Espinosa and the Mills volleyball team will play in their final home game against Pacific Union College this Saturday, Nov. 7 at 7:00 p.m. Bringing their season to a close, a special senior recognition night will precede the game.
