VHS volleyball drops close match by Jim Prosser The Vermillion volleyball teams played another exciting game but the results were less than satisfactory when they faced class B powerhouse Viborg Feb. 11. The C team played a three game match (15-7, 4-15, 10-15) for the first loss. Jackie Thomas led the team with 7 service points, 3 aces, 4 assists, and 5 digs. Annie Carlson had 6 SP, 3 aces, and 3 kills. Laura Aga contributed 4 SP, and 5 digs.
The B team couldn�t salvage a win in their two game match (10-15, 12-15). Head coach Lenni Billberg was somewhat disappointed with the closeness of the 15-5, 13-15, 12-15 three game loss in the Viborg match.
�The ability to finish just was not with us tonight,� she said. �We had the opponent down in all three games, yet just couldn�t get the job done! We did, however have strong performances from Ashley, Karen, and Allison.�
Play at the service line gave Ashey Bjorkman credit for 10 SP, 5 aces, 10K at the net, and 22 digs on defense. Karen Sorensen contributed 10 kills and 11 digs, while Allison Stewart scored 8 kills, 5 SP, 1 ace, and 9 digs.
Meggie Donnelly provided 27 assists, 8 SP, 1 ace, and 8 digs; Tessa Tuetken had an assist, 5 K, and 7 D; and Whitney Tolsma recorded a solo block, a kill, 5 SP, 4 aces and 11 digs.
