The Baldwin girls volleyball team lost to Bethel Park Tuesday night in four sets. 

Starting off strong, the Highlanders won the first set, but then were swept in the next three. Junior Alexa Hobson felt the team played well despite the loss. 

“We came out super strong to start the match,” Hobson said. “We held up a strong block all night.” 

Hobson thinks that the team struggles with its mental game while facing adversity. 

“We could improve on keeping a positive attitude when we are losing,” Hobson said. 

Junior Emmy Zandier thought sophomore Avery Barrett played well. 

“She was serving the ball well and making it very hard to return,” Zandier said. “She really helped out because we missed a lot of serves ourselves.”

The team still has a chance at playoffs, depending on their performance on Thursday.

“If we can win our next game, it is almost guaranteed we make the playoffs,” Zandier said. “It really motivates us to do our best.”

Their game on Thursday is against Peters Township at 7:30 p.m. at home.
