KAHLOTUS - "As a whole, I was pleased with our play," commented Bickleton Coach Kim Clinton.
She was speaking about last night's 3-1 win over the Kahlotus Koyotes.
"At times, we played really well in all aspects (of the match)...serving, passing, setting, hitting and hustle," said Clinton.
The Lady Pirates defeated their hosts 25-17 in the first set, but the Koyotes rallied for a 25-12 win in the second game.
"We lost some energy and struggled passing, which then affected all aspects of our game," Clinton shared.
Setting well for the Lady Pirates was Morgan McBride, and the coach credited Dede Kibby for some outstanding saves.
Bickleton's Katelynn Clinton tried switching her hitting arm and Coach Clinton said she did better with her left hand than her right.
Helping her team in game two was Aymie Osborne, passing the ball to assist with the scoring.
The Lady Pirates held the Koyotes to four points in the third game and won in the fourth set 25-19.
Also getting in some experience on the court was eighth grader Jamie Venema, and "Johanna Jensen had one of her best all around games," according to Clinton.
Bickleton travels to Mabton to face off at the net with the Lady Viking JV squad tomorrow (Saturday).
