It’s been an imploded season for Maricopa High School’s varsity volleyball team. Though staying upbeat, the girls had not won a match since Aug. 28 and had not even won a set since Sept. 18. After their first match of the season (the aforementioned win over Camelback), the Rams dropped 19 straight. So, there was more joy than usual in Thursday’s home triumph over Casteel, 3-2. After dropping the first set 19-25, Maricopa came back to win the next two 25-17 and 25-23. Casteel took the fourth game, but the Rams coasted in the fifth set 15-3 for the win. Maricopa (2-19) wraps up its season Tuesday at home with a Senior Night contest against Gilbert (18-20) at 6 p.m.
