Last week was a long week on the road for the Lady Mustang volleyball team, taking on Blue Hill on Tuesday and Shelton on Thursday. Tuesday night the junior varsity team downed the Bobcats in two sets 25-20 and 25-14. Freshman Kassi Jones had 17 service points, which helped lead the Mustangs to victory. Josi Sharp, freshman outside hitter, had a great game, leading the team in kills. Unfortunately, the varsity team fell to the Bobcats in three sets with set scores of 25-19, 25-15, 25-21. The Mustangs struggled to stop outside hitter Madison Menke, who tallied 16 kills. However, freshman Georgi tenBensel picked up 22 digs of her own, aiding the Silver Lake defense. Katelyn Karr led the charge in the third set of play with five aces. Senior Makayla Dinkler and tenBensel put down seven kills a piece with junior Seirra Watts-Hofstetter and sophomore Amanda Ehrman close behind with five kills.  

On Thursday the junior varsity team lost the first set 24-26, but came back strong in the next two winning the best of three match with scores of 25-13 and 15-7. Coach Caitlin Crowe is excited about the team’s improvement from the beginning of the year. She says, “They have been really playing well together as a team and are being aggressive.” The varsity team had a tough fight ahead of them, with the game coming down to the fifth set. The Mustangs pulled off the win with set scores of 25-22, 15-25, 25-22, 21-25, and 15-8. Ehrman led the Mustangs in ball handling, finding Watts-Hofstetter who tallied 14 of the teams’ 52 kills. tenBensel and Katelyn Karr led the defense, picking up 25 and 20 digs respectively. “I was proud of the girls’ ability to push through adversity and find ways to finish the game strong. All 14 girls continue to improve each and every day,” commented coach Kate Baker.
