MDI Trojans crush season opener

BAR HARBOR — The Mount Desert Island High School volleyball team netted their first win in a hard-fought 3-2 match against Calais at home Sept. 1. MDI held off a fierce Calais rally to record a 25-13, 29-27, 22-25, 18-25, 15-13 win.

It was the first match for the Trojans’ new coach, Richard Grant, and it wasn’t easy. But when he needed it most, his team stepped up to the task.

One point from victory in the back-and-forth tiebreaker match, he was desperate for his team to put the contest to rest.

“This is it!” Grant shouted to his team from the sidelines. “Let’s finish it!”

Nearly a minute passed, but MDI delivered. After catching Calais out of position on what seemed to be an endless volley, the Trojans’ Julia Watras spiked the ball to open space on the Blue Devils’ side of the court. ... son-opener
