Tiger volleyball sweeps at Erie

Monday, September 14, 2009

ERIE -- Fort Scott High's volleyball team improved to 8-2 on the season by sweeping through a quadrangular here Saturday.

The Tigers defeated Southeast Kansas League rival Parsons in a non-league match, 27-29, 25-15, 25-21. They swept host Erie, 25-11, 25-8 and Southeast-Cherokee, 25-8, 25-16.

"The girls played very well," Fort Scott head coach Carol Bingesser said. "Our defense was working but what brought us to the next level was our serving. All the girls served extremely well.

"Jenna Campbell has an outstanding day, serving well and hitting well. So did Sammi Therwhanger. She served great and just sees the floor so well, it makes her an extremely hard player to defend."

In the Parsons match, McDermed had 4 kills and 13 service points while Therwhanger had 3 kills, 6 digs and 17 points and Campbell had 3 kills and 12 points. Libby Halsey also served 17 points and Marliss Allen served 13.

"We struggled in the first game against Parsons," Bingesser said. "Our hitters and setter weren't on the same page. We made a few adjustments in the second game and got back on track."

In the Erie match, Therwhanger recorded 11 kills, McDermed and Campbell each had 5 and Mallory Shelton had 4. Campbell also served 19 points.

Against Southeast, Shelton recorded 6 kills, Campbell 3 and McDermed and Therwhanger 2 each. Therwhanger had 16 service points, Campbell 10 and Allen 8.

The Tigers will be in Osawatomie today for a non-league quadrangular with Louisburg and Prairie View. First match is set for 4 p.m. Saturday, they will be in a tournament at Pittsburg starting at 9 a.m.
