'Everything clicked' in West's volleyball finale
The Minnesota West Lady Jays volleyball team dispatched visiting Dakota Wesleyan JV 3-1 on Tuesday in the team's final match. Scores were 22-25, 25-21, 25-20, 25-21.
Head coach Brittney McNab was glowing with praise for her squad.
"Tremendous well-rounded effort from everyone," she said. "Our setters controlled the flow of the game. Our block was huge, and it definitely slowed down the pace of the game, which allowed our back row to get their hands on everything. Everything clicked. We didn't rely on just one or two people to get the job done. They all did it."
The team-oriented nature of the match showed in the final statistics. Kennedy Buckneberg had 20 digs, seven kills and seven blocks. Mallory Thorson had 10 kills and five blocks, and she was 13-for-13 serving with one ace. Emily Wilke had nine kills and five blocks.
Taya Mason chimed in with 11 set assists and was 17-for-18 serving with one ace. Emma Keith had 15 set assists and was 16-for-16 at the serving line with one ace.
Dannyn Peterson had six kills and three blocks. Coralis Ramos had five kills and three blocks. And Grace Suttle had 13 digs while putting 16 of 17 serves in play for a pair of aces.
