The varsity won against Corydon central with scores 25-15, 25-15. Cayley graves scored the first seven points with strong serves. Marie Terry was able to hit the ball and block, and Isabel Claywell did a nice job on serve receive.
Eastern also beat Henryville after losing to them in season. They won in two sets with scores 25-22, 25-18. Marie Terry, Gracie Gibson and Angel Campbell all did a nice job blocking. Shelbi Patton, Dallas Roberts, Cassidy Bryant and Isabel Claywell all had nice digs and coverage. Our serving wasn’t as strong against Henryville but we closed the holes on our side and played smart. Cayley graves set the ball well and was able to set up our front row and back row.
Eastern lost their only game in the invitational to Tell City with scores 25-12, 25-16. We didn’t serve well or cover our hitters and blockers. We lost our communication and that’s what took us out of the game. Angel Campbell did a great job of being a vocal leader. She did a nice job serving and talking the entire game. She blocked well and was able to get a few kills. Dallas Roberts and Isabel Claywell played well defensively. The team played well over all after winning 6 of the 7 games that they have played over the week. They are learning how to win and improve their skills. This team has a lot of talent and will continue to do great things this season.
