SHEFFIELD SUFFERS ROAD LOSS
NEW BETHLEHEM — The Sheffield varsity fell 25-14, 25-19, 25-14 to the Redbank Valley Bulldogs on Monday evening.
“We struggled defensively,” said Sheffield Head Coach Melissa Lemay. “Slow to react, caught flat-footed many times.”
Sheffield posted 13 kills, but also 12 attack errors and six blocking errors, unforced errors that Lemay knows needs to be cleaned up going forward.
“This was only our second match, so we have a lot of time to improve those skills,” Lemay said. “I was so pleased with varsity’s serving. We only had three missed serves all night.”
Lynzie Grubbs had four kills and two blocks while Kadence Steffan had 10 assists.
The Wolverines will be on the road again Thursday as they face off against Union/Allegheny-Clarion Valley.
