Cards look to erase miscues

September 7, 2000

After splitting their first match of the season, the Eudora Cardinals travel to Pomona Thursday to build on some of the positives while eliminating the negatives.

"We played pretty scrappy in the first two matches," said junior Brandi Abel, a specialist on the back row. "If we can pull it together and excel in every aspect of the game, we will be great."

Abel has her sights set only on improvement. Even though she served perfectly, the team has put about 85 percent of its serves in play in the first two matches.

"Wee had some better serving in practice lately, but we still have a little ways to go," Abel said. "(Brian) Kraus is having us work on change up serving

so we can serve in a variety of spots to throw our opponents off."

The JV team is running into trouble with its passing also. The hope is that numerous drills will help in solving the problem.

On Tuesday, the JV ladies traveled to Adams Campus at KU to participate in the obstacle course there. The activities, climbing a wall blindfolded along with others, were primarily team-oriented used to bring the players together. The course is set out by Clinton Lake and usually takes up to three to four hours to complete.

The two teams also have a tournament on Saturday. The JV will travel to

Spring Hill and the varsity will play at McLouth at 9a.m. The JV starts at 8 a.m.
