Spikers Whip the Warriors

Spikers Whip the Warriors

On Tuesday, September 10, Gregory traveled to Winner to face Bennett County.  The girls played very well through the heat and came together when it was most needed.

Leading the team with 28 digs was Codi Horst.  Following close behind was Courtney Opbroek digging up 14 and Briana Leber 10.  At the net, Courtney viciously killed the ball 15 times along with Briana Leber’s 8.  Setter Brett Steffen successfully set the ball 99/104 times for 95% and had 23 ace assists.

Mackenzie Odenbach and Opbroek each earned 6 ace serves with Brett following closely behind with 5.  Moving to serve-receive, Codi Horst was the leader with 30/32 for 94%, Desiree Stephen had 17/19 for 89% and Leber had 16/18 for 89%.

At the end of the night, the Spikers came out with a win in four sets: 25-18, 26-28, 25-22, and 26-24.  Senior Codi Horst said, “I’m really proud of our girls for not giving up and being able to pull out a win in such a hot environment.  We did have to go four games, but I feel like we learned from our mistakes and adjusted well.  Our goal is to get even stronger throughout the season and become a better team as a whole.”

The Lady Spikers will travel to Wagner on Thursday, September 12 to face the Red Raiders.
