The Ste. Genevieve girls volleyball team took to the court to face off against Jackson High School. Unfortunately for the Dragons, the night would not be a prosperous one as the girls lost in a competitive four-set match.
The first set was incredibly tight as the Dragons fell 21-25. Another tough 25-18 loss to Jefferson would see the Dragons face a win or go home third set. Ste. Genevieve fought back to win their only set of the night by a score of 25-18. While the Dragons fought their hearts out, a score of 25-11 in the fourth set would spell doom for Ste. Genevieve.
On the night Brittney Kreitler came away with two aces, two kills and a team-high 29 assists. Dru Koetting came away with a high of 12 kills, one ace and one solo block. Arie Taylor came through with eight kills, one ace and two assists while Marysa Flieg added six kills, two assists and two blocks. AJ Prudent caomplied four kills, one assist and two blocks.
Despite the loss, Coach Carla Basler had incredibly positive things to say about her Senior leader Kreitler. “Brittney does a good job of mixing the ball around which makes it more difficult for other teams to know who to block…she also hustles well and gets her hands on several balls that seem like an impossible set but somehow manages to make something out of it for our hitters to swing on. Brittney does many things well that coaches want to have in a setter”.
Next up the Dragons will take part in the MAAA Conference Tournament as the season winds down and Districts take place.
