Fort LeBoeuf proved too much for Corry’s girls volleyball team last night as the visiting Bison won three games 25-13, 25-7, 25-14.
Junior Tabitha Jaggi lead Corry with four kills, and aggressive serving. Junior Kristen Dennis had seven assists. Freshman Janele Greer continues to gain more playing time and is playing well.
“Fort LeBoeuf has a very good program that has won the league or been second for a number of years,” reported coach Kelly Goodsel. “Junior setter Taylor Welch runs a quick offense and our team just wasn’t quick enough to its defensive positions to consistently play the ball.
“We had a disappointing performance by both the varsity and the junior varsity teams,” he claimed. “Yes, LeBoeuf is a good team, but we didn’t represent ourselves very well. Our passing was tentative and inconsistent, which makes for a very difficult offensive system.”
Corry falls to 1-5 in the region and 2-5 all told. LeBoeuf stands 4-1.
LeBoeuf won the JV match 25-15, 25-18.
“Coming off a pretty strong weekend tournament showing and a very close match with Seneca on Monday night, we expected big things against LeBoeuf,” said coach Danielle Bailey. “Unfortunately for the home crowd, we played one of our weaker matches of the year. We have a week or so to get the energy level back up and focused on playing a consistent game from start to finish.”
Corry’s varsity is hosting a 12-school tournament on Saturday. The next match is Oct. 6 at home versus Girard.
