In their only action of the week, the Lady Terriers traveled the long road to Jordan on Friday afternoon to take on the Mustangs. Both junior varsity and varsity squads were ready to square off after another week’s work of practice and preparation.
“This week in practice we really stressed playing for the point and not playing it safe,” head coach Jasmine Freiboth stated.
This strategy seemingly paid off as both teams were able to handle the Mustangs easily, each chalking up a win.
The junior varsity team won by scores of : 25-23, 25-14, and 16-14. The team garnered 20 kills, led by Courtney Ban with 7. Leading the team with 17 out of a total 19 assists was setter Lindsay Stickel. Ban again led in
the aces column, chalking up 7 of the team’s 21. Anna Fredrickson was the leader in digs with 6 out of the team’s total 19.
The varsity squad handled the Mustangs in three games 25-13, 25-22, and 25-14. Leading the team in kills was Dani Dukart with 14 of the team’s 33 total kills. Setter Amanda Haidle led the team in assists with 11; the team had a total of 28 assists. Haidle again led in aces served with 4 out of a team total of 14. Carly Stickel was the leader in the dig category with 8; the team had a total of 27 digs. Dukart was able to get 2 of the 3 total team blocks in the match.
After the girls’ performances, seeing their game strategies working, and getting the wins against Jordan, Freiboth was pleased.
“Both teams worked so well together,” Freiboth stated. “They did a great job and I look forward to what is to come.”
Terry will travel to Wibaux on Friday, September 11, to match up against the Longhorns in junior varsity and varsity action. Then it is on to Ekalaka Saturday the 12, where they will compete in the Ekalaka Invitational.
