The Wellsville girls’ volleyball team improved to 8-0 with a hard-fought 27-25, 25-21, 25-17 win over Bolivar-Richburg in Bolivar on Friday night.
“This was an awesome game. The girls worked so hard this week at practice making the adjustments they needed to make to stop a player like Jianna Nix on the other side,” Lady Lions coach Shannon Steiner said. “They did very well doing that in the game, and they adjusted their blocks and picked up tips. I am so proud of them. The energy in the gym was awesome, and between that and our fans, it was a great game to be a part of.”
The Lady Lions (8-0) propelled their way into the win column with the help of Brooklyn Stisser, who led the offensive attack behind a team-leading nine kills to go with four digs. Marley Adams (two aces, two digs) and Kaylee Coleman (three aces) each chipped in with six kills of their own. Jaelyn Knapp (three digs, two aces) followed with four kills, while Emma Dunaway (two aces) had three to chip in. Setter Maddy Parks dished out 20 assists to pair with four aces and four digs.
