The St Andrews Women First displayed this new team’s amazing potential in their first premiere league match of the season against Edinburgh. Although resulting in a loss for the Saints, the two hour long game tested the endurance of both teams and was characterized by incredible play. The Saints started the match off strong by winning the first set, an especially exciting victory after failing to do so only a few weeks before. Both Sydney Maxwell and Maria Steen hit some beautiful back-line kills while Kristen Copley was a dominant blocker at the net. Regardless of losing the subsequent three sets, the team sustained an intense level of energy and play, even after an abrupt knee injury took a teammate out of the match. Overall, the match was an amazing beginning to the premier league games and undoubtedly instilled confidence in the team’s capabilities while generating excitement for the rest of the season.
