The girls volleyball team started its season 0-1 against St. Thomas, losing 3-1 at home on Aug. 28.

“We definitely could have kept our energy higher,” senior Madison Bobes said.

The team was able to keep the score close throughout the match, except for the third set which St. Thomas won 25-15.

“We just let go of our serves, which is usually what we were dominating with,” Bobes said.

The visiting team faced many taunts, with some of the Pompano crowd chanting “free education” and trying to distract the opposing team captain. Last year, Aquinas made it to the semifinals of the Class 8A state championship.

The JV team lost 2-0 earlier that evening.

“It was horrible,” Coach William Strachan said about the JV game.

The team will play Archbishop McCarthy at home on Sept. 6.
