Unbeaten Lady Knights tame the Mustangs with aggressive play

The Sunnyside Christian volleyball team continued its dominating season by winning at home in three games against the Trout Lake/Glenwood Mustangs last night (Tuesday).

The undefeated Lady Knights (3-0, 8-0) once again fought hard to prove their prowess, winning 25-17, 25-20, 25-21.

"We played a great team game tonight," SCHS Coach Stephanie Dalrymple said after the 1A league match. "We knew we had to come out and play very aggressive volleyball."

And the Lady Knights were aggressive, with Stormee Van Belle leading the team with 11 kills. Brittany Broersma also launched eight unreturnable spikes, while Maddy Wavrin added seven more.

Teamwork was in the air, as Alexandra Newhouse was credited with 12 perfect passes and Wavrin provided 17 perfect passes of her own. Danika DeGroot put the ball where it needed to be with 10 assists, while Alyssa Haak gave the team 15 more. Broersma, in addition to her eight kills, got five blocks.

But the team really shined from the service line, with DeGroot going 15-for-15, Haak going 10-for-10 and Ashleigh Oswalt going 9-for-9. The rest of the team wasn't shabby either, Newhouse went 15-for-16, Van Belle was 10-for-11 and Wavrin 11-for-13.

"Our serving continued to be great tonight and our passing was great too," Dalrymple said, "We played aggressive at the net tonight as well."

"I was very happy with how the girls played tonight."

Sunnyside Christian's next game is Tuesday, Oct. 11, at Klickitat.
