Owen Valley JV Earns 20th Win Of Volleyball Season
Coach Shelly Roberts and her Owen Valley junior varsity volleyball team hosted the South Vermillion Lady Wildcats on Thursday, earning a 2-0 win by scores of 25-7, 25-11 to extend their season record to 20-5.
“The crowd was awesome,” coach Roberts said after the match. “Thank you to all the fans who came out to support both teams. Another thank you goes out to the cheerleaders for all of their support, too.”
Coach Roberts continues, “Okay... bottom line, my girls played great last night. I really enjoyed coaching them because they were working hard and as one unit... a team! Attitudes were great and so was our defense. I don’t give our setter, Beth Mauder enough recognition, but because of her hustle and sets, our offense was great too! Beth had 14 assists!”
Sarah Newforth led the team in scoring with 10 points, followed by Beth Mauder with nine, Lexi Richardson six, Jennifer Morgan five, and Brooke Swope, Tressa Morris, Ashley Rogers and Christina Sekaz one each. Morgan led the team in aces with three.
The OV defense was also on fire and well balanced with Swope and Mauder leading the way with seven digs each. Morgan and Zoey Bennington each had five digs and Sarah Newforth four. Swaim added two digs while Rogers and Sekaz added one.
“Last night was an emotional Senior Night, saying goodbye to five great girls I have coached for many years, going back as far as fifth grade,” coach Roberts noted. “I’m very proud of each of them and fortunate to have been able to coach each one of them on multiple teams over the years. Congratulations, Cecelia, Morgan, Becca, Lexie and Katie.”
Owen Valley will travel to Greencastle tonight, Monday, for a 6:00 match-up with the Lady Tiger Cubs.
