It was a night of firsts at Peoria High School. Like most every other high school volleyball team in Arizona, Tuesday marked the first match of the 2007 season. For Peoria the evening had more meaning. After a year playing their matches in the school's practice facility, while the main gym was renovated, it was a home coming for the Panthers players. The game also marked the program's first home contest in 4A since Peoria made the jump to 5A following the 1998 season. With all that as a backdrop the game also served as the first match of rookie coach Teresa Fuller's career. But just to make sure the evening wouldn't be easily forgotten the host Panthers and visiting Paradise Valley Trojans tangled for a bizarre yet entertaining five-game match that eventually went to the home team. In a battle in which neither team could win consecutive games Peoria finally earned the victory 25-20, 16-25, 25-13, 16-25, 15-5. "It was good to get that first win," Fuller said. "Despite everything that went on during the match I really felt confident heading into that final game. I just told the girls enough is enough it's time to finish this team off. You could just see it in the girl's eyes that we wanted it." The Panthers were battling more than the Trojans in the final game. They had to exercise the curse that seemed to be afflicting whichever team found their way to the north side of the court. Through the first four games the two teams alternated performing their best Jekyll and Hyde impression. The team on the south side of the court appeared confident, controlled play at the net and passed well, while the team on the north side of the net lacked communication, had a terrible time with serve receive, and saw their hitters shoot kill attempts long and wide throughout the first four games. "It was strange," Fuller agreed. "Just when you felt like you had the momentum really going with you it would go ahead and disappear. I think we learned a lot about ourselves tonight though. We kept fighting." Following four long games, which were continuously bogged down by a Paradise Valley team that inexplicably was unable to substitute and rotate correctly, needing to be corrected time and again by the officials, Peoria stepped forward to give the evening a conclusion, and their coach her first win. Having alternated through the first five points Peoria junior Hillary Toone took the serve with her team leading 3-2. "Hillary was really consistent for us all night, in all facets," said the coach of her junior. From 3-2 Toone and her teammates would make it 10-2 before Paradise Valley could stop the 8-0 run. With an array of hard deep serves the Trojans had trouble keeping Toone's efforts in play much less produce an effective attack. That opened the door for setter Lisa Ramirez to setup her teammates offensively. Junior Tatum Carlson stepped to the forefront as did seniors Leah Orth and Jordan Corder. While the group all recorded at least one clean kill in the final game they also won the battles at the net on multiple 50-50 balls at the net coming up with the winners to give their team the momentum. "I think we were feeling the butterflies before the game," said Ramirez who featured a wicked jump serve in addition to her duties setting up her teammates. "Especially for the seniors though it felt really good being back in our gym. We've played together for a long time and we didn't want to let them beat us on our floor." Corder would give the Panthers their first match point with her third kill of the deciding game. She would then serve the final point. When an arrant pass sailed off course the Panthers were able to celebrate their first of what Ramirez said should be many victories. "We know Cactus (the defending champion) is in our region, but that lets us know who we have to shoot for," she said. "Coach expects a lot out of us and we do too. We communicate well. We've got a good group of seniors and if Tatum steps up and plays as aggressively as she did tonight we're going to be real good. We want to play in the state finals." After one win Fuller was a bit more measured in her optimism. "We've got some things we can build on. We tried a look with two setters and I think we probably learned that we're better off going with a 5-1 so we can keep Leah concentrating on being one of our main hitters. It's a good group. Hopefully we'll keep getting better," said the coach following the first of what she hopes will be many post victory interviews.
