By Craig Olson - Barrett, MN
The West Central Area Knights Volleyball team hosted Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley on Tuesday night in Barrett with the Wolverines coming out on top 3-1 (25-12, 25-23, 22-25, 25-14).
“The Knights did a great job of bouncing back after a tough loss on Monday night against Brandon-Evansville to play a much more consistent game against CGB,” reported Head Coach Amy Linn of WCA. “Overall we played much better as a team, had better communication, and stuck more to our game plan versus always being out of system. Although we did not get the win, we feel much better about how we played tonight.”
Katie Merrick led the team at the net with 15 kills and 4 blocks, followed byBrianna Kreft with 6 kills and 21 set assists. Leading the team on the defensive front was Morgan Sanstead with 32 digs, and Gabbi Beuckens with 28 digs.
“Kaitlyn Sanstead also really stepped it up for us and did a great job hustling and picking up ball for us in the backrow,” said Coach Linn. “Morgan Woodle andSierra Westrom came in off the bench and did a great job filling in for the injuredDemara Bumgardner. The Knights have a few days off before hosting New York Mills on Monday night. We are looking forward to a few days of practice to work on our offense.”
