Lady Lions too much for CCSI
WCCS varsity volleyball played an away match at CCSI and won the match easily in three sets, 25-11, 25-6, and 25-10.
CCSI has essentially a new team this year, only two returning players from last year, a young team that has a lot of potential, but their lack of experience was quickly exposed by their inability to return WCCS serves.
McKenna Phelps had a serving run of nine-straight points in the first set and Rachel Beatty had a run of nine straight in the second set.
Emma Marino, and Krystal Kinney each had runs of five-straight.
WCCS JV got their chance for some playing time toward the end of each of the sets.
“Sometimes it’s hard for our players to stay engaged in the game when the opponent is struggling to control the ball, but I thought they did a great job of maintaining focus,” said WCCS coach Mark Brenner. “We are now turning our attention to Thursday night’s match against Youngsville and preparing for good competition. It has been awhile since we have been able to compete head to head with our hometown team and we are really looking forward to it.”
Leading WCCS were McKenna Phelps – 15 service points, 8 aces, 2kills, 2 assists, 1 block, 1 dig; Rachel Beatty – 12 service points, 8 aces, 2 kills, 2 assists, 2 digs; Emma Marino – 7 service points, 6 aces, 5 kills, 1 assist, 3 digs; Krystal Kinney – 11 service points, 8 aces, 1 kill, 2 digs; Gwen Reed – 7 assists, 3 digs; Kiara Baker – 3 service points, 2 aces, 3 kills, 2 digs; Emily Cox – 5 service points, 2 aces and Jael Brenner – 3 service points, 2 aces.
