EDINBORO — Unbeaten General McLane was too much for Corry in girls volleyball last night sweeping the visiting Beavers 25-8, 25-11, 25-20.
GM moved to 5-0 overall and 4-0 in the region, Corry falling to 1-3 and 0-3.
“From the opening play, where McLane passed well, ran a quick set and their returning All-State player Courtney Lydick hit it hard to the floor for a kill, we knew it was going to be a challenge,” reported coach Kelly Goodsel. “Everyone saw some playing time gaining some valuable experience for the future.
“To beat McLane — who went to the states final eight last year — we needed to play a mistake free match and we weren’t able to achieve that,” he said. “We lost to a better team and need to put that behind us and get ready for Iroquois on Thursday.”
For Corry, Kayla Stover had her best night of the year. The young middle hitter had five kills with zero hitting errors, one service ace and played consistent all night.
Junior setter Kristen Dennis led the way with five assists and was a consistent server over the course of the night.
McLane won the junior varsity match 25-18, 23-25, 15-8, the fourth match this season to go three games..
“We started out the match a little slow and then started to play more confidently as the evening went on,” said coach Danielle Bailey. “All the girls played hard and are starting to believe that they can play and beat just about anyone in the league.
“It was nice to see some of the skills and plays we are working on in practice starting to show up on game night,” she claimed.
Corry was led by sophomores Stover and Karlie Bailey with four kills each, and Taylor Roth with five assists and the most service points. Freshman Hannah Kondrlik had three assists and two service aces. The offensive statistics were a result of good passing by Alexis Eckstrom, Alex Puckly and Janele Greer.
Corry plays tomorrow at Iroquois.
