Blue Jays Kirstyn Lloyd was crucial for the Blue Jays Tuesday night, leading the team in assists with 12 and providing energy on the court all game.
Paige Siebert and Payton Siebert were also critical to the Blue Jays sweep of the Hornets. Sophomore Paige tied fellow sophomore Lloyd in assists with 12, while Payton contributed four blocks; two solos and two assisted.
Paige Siebert emphasized the importance of the team’s passing after the game.
“We really focused on our passing tonight, and that allowed setters to set up their hitters nicely,” Paige said. “I hope we continue that onto Thursday. I would like us all to focus more on our serving as a whole.”
Payton Siebert made sure to stress that despite the decisive win, the team still needed improvement.
“The overall win I believe was a success,” Payton said. “We had some good things and not so great things, but that gives us an idea for what to prepare for in the future.”
The Blue Jays are back in action Thursday night as they take on the Festus Tigers (2-7) in hopes of continuing their strong run of form these last few games.
