The Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School volleyball team lost its season opener Aug. 23.

The Lady Tiger Sharks fell at Liberty County 3 sets to 1 with scores of 19-25, 16-25, 25-23 and 8-25. With only three returning seniors, it is a young varsity team. There are also three juniors and five sophomores.

The girls had several conditioning sessions over the summer to help prepare for the upcoming season. The junior varsity team is young as well. There are 14 players on the junior varsity squad. The JV team is composed of ten freshmen and four sophomores. It is definitely a year that holds promise but may take a little while for to all start coming together.

Some bright spots from last weeks season opener: senior Hannah Fulk was 100 percent from the service line. No service errors and 12 points scored during her serving time. Also, senior Tori Fountain had 14 digs and 17 serve receives. The team only had two blocks and a total of ten kills. So, plenty of room for improvement.
