BICKLETON - Teamwork is definitely apparent in Lady Pirate volleyball, according to coach Joelle Patterson, with a three-game win over Trout Lake-Glenwood last night.
The three-game home match went to Bickleton via scores of 25-10, 25-17 and 26-24.
The sweep avenged a 3-0 loss Bickleton suffered at Trout Lake in mid-September.
Though seemingly an easy win, Patterson said the team could still improve at the service line.
"They did everything right (at the match), they just missed too many serves," she said.
Providing the most assists for Bickleton throughout the match was sophomore Haley Goodnight with 13. The Lady Pirate was also 11-for-13 at the service line. Sophomore Amanda McBride provided eight assists and was 11-for-12 at the service line. Sophomore Syndie Obanion had two kills and was 8-for-9 at the service line. Jamie Venema had eight kills and four blocks. This sophomore also was 8-for-8 at the service line. Senior Aymie Osborne had 13 kills and was 16-for-20 at the service line. Freshman Lindsay Brown had four kills. The Lady Pirate was also 10-for-12 at the service line and had one block.
Last night's win takes Bickleton's overall record on the season to 4-4, 3-2 in league play. The Lady Pirates will battle Sunnyside Christian High School for the first time this season, Thursday, Oct. 13, at home in their new gym.
