Our Lady Bears 7th Grade A Team played a heartfelt game against Willow Wood last night. Within both games, our ladies had such GREAT hustle, support, and showed a tremendous amount of leadership towards each other. Our “superstar of the week,” Alli Gentry had two fantastic blocks at the net and 3 shanks during serves. Jenna Shaffer, Hadley Kelly, Leah Hammack, Megan Beuershausen, Camrynn Payne, and Haley Baird played a great game of defense against Willow Woods serves, allowing us to set up some amazing plays! Chloe Richards had stupendous sets in both games and showed off her talent with a “killer” kill! Lizzy Mowery and Allie Ebbeler both were “on point” with their serving including a variety of shanks and Aces! Ava Violette had a few great tips at the net and fantastic hustle the entire first match! As WONDERFUL as our Lady Bears played, unfortunately Willow Wood won both games, 13-25.
BBJH 7th Grade B Team (7B) fought a tough match against Willow Wood Junior High. In game 1, Michele Salas made incredible saves and scored 3 points with her serves. Carissa Thelen worked hard in middle front, scoring 2 points from defensive "Happy Birthdays", and she served game 1's only ace! Despite 7B's hustle, they lost game 1 (BBJH 18 - WWJH 25).
7B struggled at the start of game 2, but they preserved and came back from a 16 point deficient! Kylie Murphy served 5 points, and Emerson Cykoski won 2 more points with her serves. Michele Salas, Carissa Thelen, and Summer Cosman showed hustle and focus with their saves thought the game. 7B showed determination and teamwork till the end of the game, making the loss a learning opportunity (BBJH 16 - WWJH 25). 7B looks forward to applying their lessons learned next week against Montgomery Junior High.
