CLAY CITY -- The Clay City Eels came out and evened their season volleyball mark with a convincing, 25-13, 25-19, 25-9 win against South Vermillion.
The Eels were dominant in just about every facet of the game, including an impressive run at the service line that kept the Wildcats from getting into any sort of rhythm.
"We played well tonight. We came out and took care of business and never let South Vermillion in the match," coach Lu Anne Anderson said. "We had a lot of aces as a team (23). We have been continuing to work on our serves in practice."
Clay City also got 14 kills, six aces from Lynsey Higgins and a 29-assist match from Olivia Schindler. Callie Dayhuff compiled five aces with three kills and a team-high 14 digs and Brielle Drelick posted six digs, four aces and three kills. Shelby Hane added five kills, Halli Brewer added three to go with a block and a dig and both LaKyla Cook and Chloe Kittle each had three aces. Asie Jeffers contributed two kills a block and a dig.
Though the Eels won to improve to 9-9 this season, Anderson believes that her team must still sharpen their game as the postseason approaches.
"We had way too many unforced errors in game two, but we were able to refocus and correct our mistakes in game three," Anderson said.
The Eels are now off until they travel to Shakamak on Oct. 4 at 6 p.m.
