The Sunnyside Christian Lady Knights started out slow but still managed to win their home match against Trout Lake last night in three sets, 25-20, 25-14, 25-10.
“We struggled getting control in the first set but really kept control during sets two and three,” said Sunnyside Christian Coach Stephanie Dalrymple. “We played very well as a team.”
Lady Knight Stormee Van Belle slammed six kills and gave her team a 19-for-19 performance from the service line last night. Brittany Broersma joined her at the line for six kills of her own, and SCHS teammate Kate Newhouse spiked the ball seven times.
Newhouse also tallied eight perfect passes and came up with seven digs in the match. Sunnyside Christian’s Annie Brouwer also dug up the ball seven times and made six perfect passes. Aydan Harrington had 11 assists for the Lady Knights.
McKenzie Benjert was also solid serving, going 13-for-14 and contributing another nine assists to Sunnyside Christian’s tallies.
The Lady Knights wore pink uniforms last night to raise awareness of breast cancer.
