Lady Pirate Volleyball Improves on the Road in MSC Win
The Lady Pirates improve their record to (9-6 & MSC 4-2) after an impressive conference win on the road against Eastern (5-11 & MSC 2-4). Head coach Tammy Nuxoll was very pleased with her teams performance last night.
“We came out strong and Eastern made some mistakes to help us win the first set. The second set Eastern cut down on their errors and we had trouble stringing points together. The third set we played more consistent and were able to win. In the fourth set, we were down 15-21 when I called my last time out. After that we decided to wake up and play. Kayleigh Smith was unstoppable and earned 9 of her 19 kills for the night in the fourth set. Her offense was attributed to good defense behind her and good setting decisions. Peyton Crace really helped us with her serving in the final stretch of the win by earning 6 service points to end the match. I’m proud of the whole team for their efforts overcoming a 15-21 deficit in the fourth to win the final set 26-24. Kyra Sharp also contributed to the offense with 11 kills and Kylie McConnell had 8 kills. Savannah McClellan, Kayleigh Smith and Alyssa Heal helped with passing and Kyra Sharp contributed 5 digs while Abbi East had 4 digs. We used a different line up tonight and I’m happy with the way the girls adapted and supported each other. We will be back at it tomorrow night at home against Lanesville.”
