The team lost to defending champions, Hayfield High School.
The Lady Generals lost their 3rd straight game last night to the defending champions, Hayfield High School. Playing against the defending District Champion left no room for error or low energy and last night there seemed to be plenty of each that slowed down the General's game. They needed to be at their strongest, but they seemed a little tense and "out of sync" with one another. Aliya Winker (10) and Enji Batbaatar (15) played well, but couldn't take the weight of the team to a win; a strong performance was also shown by Rebecca Jones (2). The Junior Varsity team won its match 2-1 (25-16,10-25,15-12), while the Freshman squad won 2-0 (25-20.25-23). This Thursday, 28 Oct 2010, Washington-Lee faces Wakefield at home.

Generals jump out to leads in early sets but fall in fifth-set tie-breaker to Cougars
Vienna - The Washington-Lee Generals came out strong in Thursday night's contest against Oakton High School and looked poised to rebound from a tough defeat on Tuesday at the hands of Lake Braddock. But rather than capitalizing on their early advantages, errors—not to mention the Cougars—caught up to the Generals, who ultimately fell in five sets, 25-22, 15-25, 25-22, 15-25, 9-15. Washington-Lee benefitted from Oakton's early rust—the Cougars had not played a competitive match in nine days and were shuffling all of their players in and out of the line-up—and staked themselves to a lead early in each of the first two sets. In the first, Oakton suffered a number of faulty plays as Washington & Lee senior Rebecca Jones scored an ace and …

Washington-Lee Volleyball falls to Lake Braddock, 3-0.
The Washington-Lee Volleyball team suffered a loss to Lake Braddock last night, for a good cause. The Generals fell 3-0 (12-25, 22-25, 18-25) to the Bruins during their Stand Up 2 Cancer charity event. During the event, the Generals wore pink, but brought awareness to all types of cancer, not just breast cancer. "I think we played well, it was kind of off for us, I think we were distracted with the cancer awareness and wearing the pink jerseys," said libero Megan Adkins-Blanch. "I think we attacked well and passed well and adjusted to their defense well." Head coach John Delaney said the girls weren't playing their game, so today's practice will focus on remembering how much they enjoy playing volleyball together. They will work on …

The General defense wasn't able to overcome the Raiders.
The Washington-Lee Girls Varsity Volleyball Team (3-2, non-tournament play) fell to J.E.B. Stuart (3-2, non-tournament play) Monday night, 0-3 (24-26, 23-25 and 24-26). "They (Stuart) had very good middles and we just never made a correction or an adjustment," said W-L head coach John Delaney. "We just couldn't find an answer to stop them in the middle and that essentially put us off the whole match, everybody was uneasy. The whole defense was uneasy because we didn't know what was going to happen. And even when we did get a touch on them, it was something that was dumped or dropped in front. We just couldn't click on defense, and that's actually kind of been our problem all year anyways." The Generals lost each game by two points, the …

Washington-Lee Defeats McLean, 3-1.
The Washington-Lee Varsity Volleyball team (2-1, non-tournament play) defeated McLean (1-2, non-tournament play) 3-1, Monday, in their first home game of the season because of water damage to the gym. The Highlanders took the first game, but the Generals answered with three consecutive wins. "We played out of our minds," W-L head coach John Delaney said. "We just had a tournament on Saturday and the things you saw today did not happen. There was no hesitating, they just looked like they wanted to defend their court. Even in the first game that we lost, I didn't think we lost—it looked like we won—so I was happy with even that loss." The Generals played in Saturday's Herndon Invitational, but were unable to earn any wins. Senior outside …
