The Terrier volleyball team faced the Jordan Mustangs again on Friday, September 20th in a rematch of the previous week. Unfortunately, the Terriers were on the losing end of the matchup this time.
The Terriers came out strong in the first game and beat the Mustangs by a score of 25-17. The score was reversed in the next game, as the Mustangs beat the Terriers 25-17. The third and fourth game were both very close, but the Mustangs were able to win both games by a score of 23-25 and 24-26, respectively.
The Terriers adjusted the lineup earlier in the week and moved a couple of the girls to different positions. Exelee Church was moved to a defensive specialist and Valerie Greenfield stepped in as a setter/right side hitter. “Both of these girls played very well considering that they had limited time to prepare and practice the new positions. Once the girls get more comfortable playing in these new positions, I feel the new rotation will be very effective for us.”
Caty Morrison and Lexie Schlosser lit up the court with 17 and 13 kills, respectively.
The third and fourth game were very close and could have gone either way. The Terriers have a number of players that can get the ball down, they just need to eliminate the unforced error. Under the consistent serving of Halle Keltner and Alyssa Morast the team improved their serving percentage to a 96 percent accuracy rate.
Terry v. Jordan - 25-17; 17-25; 23-25; 24-26
Aces 9 (Keltner 4); Kills 42 (Morrison 17); Digs 64 (Church 16); Assists 42 (Greenfield 23); Blocks 6 (Morrison 4)
