“We are continuing to improve and played a solid match against a good team,” said Underwood Head Coach Diane Ross. “With a set apiece, the 3rd set was back and forth, with the score 19-20, Ally Johnson connected on a big kill, Wheaton then went ahead 21-20 when Kayla Rocholl got a big kill, it was back and forth and Kayla came up with another kill for point 25. The score was tied 15-15 in set 4 when we started to gain momentum, we got some big points from Shaynah Smith and Brooke Hovland put away match point. We passed the ball well and that opened up opportunities for our setter, Reese Richards, she ended the night with 34 assists.”
