Raffles Athletics are very much back in play this year! Your Raptors hosted a 3-way volleyball match with Crescendo and Repton, yesterday. We were represented by 2 teams, against our opponents’ finest. The 1st team’s match with Repton was the matchup of the year! The Raptors and Repton split the first 2 sets with a total point differential of 4. After losing the 2nd set 16-18 to Repton, the Raptors caught their second wind and thrashed Repton, 11-3, in the deciding set.
The Raptors’ 2nd team’s matchup against Crescendo did not end up with a win. This group, though feisty, came up just 4 points shy of taking the deciding set. The team lost the first set tight, before taking command and putting away Crescendo in the second set 15-11 behind an astounding performance on the service line by Alfie Taylor. The young freshman racked up 5 aces in a row, and 7 points with him serving, bringing the Raptors back from a 7-10 deficit.
