“We had a great effort from the outsides Tori and Claire, one hitting error in 65 swings between the two of them,” Gretchen Crum said. “Great decisions and defense by the setters; the back row serve received and covered well. Not a lot gets past Arion and Zeck in the back row. Trisha had five solo blocks to help our defense and our M2 Aubrey Young made some really good decisions where she sent the ball. She sees the court well. We missed Brooke Langley’s help tonight as she is on her way to D.C. on a 4-H awards trip.
“This was a fun win for senior night honoring Gabi, Claire and Kassi for their contribution to Lady Kings volleyball for six years, and to our very special managers Shelby Sanders and Whitney Lawson for their encouragement to the players and loyalty to the program.”
Next up for the Kings is Class A No. 6 Pioneer at the Cass County Tournament on Saturday at the Berry Bowl.
