It’s been an up-and-down year for the Valley Center varsity girls volleyball team so far in 2013.

Specifically, it’s been a season of an up followed by two downs, as the Lady Jaguars have won twice and lost four in the first six matches.

The Lady Jags won the season opener 2–1 over Our Lady of Peace in the Fall Classic Tournament, but dropped the next two, falling 2–1 against Carlsbad and 2–0 against Calvary Christian.

They bounced back for a 2–1 win over Foothills Christian, but followed that with a 2–1 loss to Brawley to finish out the tournament.

In the first full game of the regular season, the Lady Jaguars hosted Scripps Ranch last Tuesday and couldn’t find a rhythm in taking a 3–0 loss.

Thus far in the young season, Jen Casillas is leading the team with 43 kills, while Annika Odeen has 16 and Brooke DeLauder has ten. Odeen also has six service aces, while Casillas and Susie Henderson each have five and Brie Dunckel has four. Casillas and Cheyanna Phelps have each blocked three shots, while Henderson and DeLauder each have 30 assists.

The Lady Jaguars have a few weeks off before they play again on Tuesday, Oct. 1 at Escondido. The next home game comes on Thursday, Oct. 3 against Mission Hills, with a scheduled start time of 4:45 p.m.
