The Ste. Genevieve Dragons JV volleyball team played host to St. Vincent Indians in a three-set match. The Dragons were able to snag a convincing 2-0 win, improving their record to 9-1.
The Dragons looked dominant early, routing the Indians in set one with a 25-17 win. In set two, the Indians were able to close the gap, but in the end, Ste. Genevieve came out on top with a 25-21 win and with it a 2-0 win in the game.
Leading the way for the Dragons was sophomore Lexy Parmer, who was dominant all night. Parmer led the team in digs with nine to go along with two aces and two assists.
Another player who was key for Ste. Genevieve was sophomore setter, Devyn Basler. Basler led the Dragons in assists, putting up 10 over the game to go along with three digs and a kill.
Head coach Tyson Roth said that setters, like Basler, were key to getting the win.
“Our setters are very intelligent volleyball players,” Roth said. “They know how to reverse the set when needed and also know the right time and placement on when and where to tip the ball.”
Other difference-makers for the Dragons included junior Hailey Austin and sophomore Ali Byington. Austin led the team with six kills and a block, while Byington had eight assists, four kills and an ace.
The Dragons now stand at an impressive 8-1 and Roth said that he continues to be impressed by the team’s performances throughout the season.
“Overall, this squad continues to impress me with their resilience, grit and passion for the game of volleyball,” Roth said. “They work hard and continue to do so and that is paying off for them on the court so far this JV season.”
