Madison huddles during their 3-0 victory over Highland Thursday. 

Madison's volleyball team played beat Highland in three sets Thursday. The scores for each set were: 25-16; 25-9; 25-23.

Head Coach Meranda Maestas believes that the team has improved pretty well since the beginning of the season.

“We have a lot of ups and downs — they have gotten a lot better with when they realize that it’s starting to get close, to focus in and finish out,” Maestas said.

Thursday was a pretty important match for Madison's Charity Wilson, who tore her ACL earlier this year. The sets against Highland were the first she’s been allowed to play up in the front row since her injury.

“It was kind of a trial run and she did really well,” Maestas said.

Since Wilson’s recovery went well, she will continue to play in the front row throughout the season. Having Wilson able to be in the front will allow the Bobcats to have more lineup versatility.

“I’m excited that we have a lot more front-row options then we've had,” Maestas said.

Madison's next game is Tuesday against Thunder Ridge at Madison High School.
