They are happy girls. But they needed happy feet.
Frida Macias is emblematic. She likes art and architecture. At least once a day, she laughs until she cries. She’s happy-go-lucky.
But Frida and her teammates, facing the toughest team in the league, didn’t have happy feet. On Thursday in Camarillo, Beacon Hill Academy delivered hits that feel like lightning bolts from Zeus, and a lot of their serves landed like attacks.
Lighthouse Christian Academy, if it was going to put a fight, had to move quickly on the court.
They didn’t. LCA lost in three straight sets: 10-25, 14-25, 11-25.
“We shouldn’t let so many balls drop,” Coach Jessica Young said. “When they decide to work hard and sacrifice their bodies, then we’ll be better.”
So happy feet that move fast.
“I feel like I could have done better by moving my feet,” Frida said. “But overall I think I did really good for this good team. At sometimes I was a little frustrated with myself because I wasn’t really moving my feet.”
LCA also needed to dive to return lightning bolts.
With an 8-2 season, the Saints will likely get into playoffs. Read the rest: Unhappy feet in volleyball
