Jacks no match for Greyhounds

QUINCY - The Grandview High School girls volleyball team notched its sixth straight win last night with a 3-0 victory over the Quincy Jackrabbits.

The match lasted about 40 minutes, according to Grandview Coach John LaFever, about a quarter of the amount of time it took the Lady Greyhounds to make the trek to Quincy.

"It was a pretty quick match," he said of the 25-9, 25-8, 25-16 win.

Grandview controlled the first two games with spiking, led by Kinzi Poteet and Sydney Mottice.

"They did most of the work," LaFever added.

Poteet and Mottice teamed up for 22 kills in the match.

Serving played a big part in the Lady Greyhounds' win, with Kaitee Eucker recording 15 service points and three aces.

"She had some long serving runs," LaFever said.

Poteet also served well, according to LaFever. She finished with 11 service points and three aces.

In the third game Grandview cruised a bit and might have took it easier than they should have, LaFever said.

"We play a couple of different line-ups in the match," he added.

Even though his team let up a bit in the last game, LaFever said his girls played well.

"We're still getting better," he said. "We're better than we were earlier in the season but we still have room for improvement."

Poteet had 12 kills and three blocks to go with her serving stats. Mottice added 10 kills and Eucker had three.

Vanessa Medina recorded 24 assists.

Grandview (6-0, 6-1) will play rival and two-time State champion Selah next Thursday, Oct. 9, at 7 p.m. in Selah.

"We'll be anxious to play them and I'm sure they'll be anxious to play us," LaFever said. "I'm sure we'll see them later in the season."

Grandview's match with Othello that was scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 7 has been moved to Monday, Nov. 3. due to the State tournament being moved back a week.
