September 27, 2007

The eighth-grade varsity volleyball team moved its record to 12-0 after winning its own tournament Saturday.

The first match, the team beat Wellsville 25-20, 25-15. Next, Eudora defeated Osawatomie 25-15, 25-18, and for the final match in pool play, beat Piper 25-6, 25-22.

Eudora advanced to the championship game where the team faced a very tough Tonganoxie team.

The first game was won 25-16, and the second game was a nail biter but the Cards were victorious at 25-24.

The Cardinals split with Ottawa in action Monday with scores in the first match of 25-11, 22-25, 11-15.

This was the Cardinals first loss of the season, but regrouped and defeated the Cyclones in the second match 25-11, 25-13.

Coach Brenda Wiley said Madeline Dickerson displayed amazing hitting ability and Katelyn Abel, Morgan Wiley and Shelby Mullis supported Madeline with great hitting and blocking.

Ashlyn Jackson and Jen Bowser showed maturity and athleticism in their setting, and Kate Dennis played an awesome libero for the Cards, Wiley said.

Victoria Lehmann's serves were impossible to return giving us more momentum, and Chloe Pittman and Auston Katzfey both played well in this incredible team effort, Wiley said.

The Cards play at 4 p.m. Monday at Wheatridge Middle School in Gardner.
