Lady Miners raid Lady Vikings
Hanna netters down Guernsey in three sets
The Hanna, Elk Mountain, Medicine Bow (HEM) High School Lady Miners met the Guernsey Lady Vikings for the second time this season and won the match decisively. The first game was close with a score of 25-21.
“We started a bit slow in our first set, but the momentum changed late in that set and the girls didn’t let up for final two sets,” coach Jackie Jones said.
The second game was won convincingly with a score of 25-10.
“Early in the second set, Mackenzie Finn went down with a severe ankle sprain,” Jones said. “Her status for this week is still unknown. Classmate Jessica Nelsen took her spot and did a great job for the Lady Miners.”
Nelson was 7 for 7 in serves. She was not the only Lady Miner to have a day of great serving. Caycee Born was 14 for 14, Amy Campbell was 11 for 11, Taylar Scott 9 for 9, Cloe Olsen 14 for 15 and Madison Campbell 9 for 10.
Jones had praise for her players.
“The Campbell twins were a terror at the net against the Lady Vikings,” said Jones. “There was a series of three straight plays in the final set where Madison found the far left corner, the far right corner, and finally a spot down the middle of the defense for three consecutive kills.”
Madison Campbell had 9 kills and her sister Amy had 15. The twins also had blocks with Amy Campbell having five and Madison three.
Jones said the communication on the floor was at an all time high, with enthusiasm shown by Scott, who Jones called a bright spot on the evenings win.
The last game was won by the Lady Miners 25-15.
“Sophomore Megan Hunter played a great role for us against Guernsey, and her improvement has been quite fun to watch,” Jones said. “Cloe Olsen continues to be a spark plug on defense and she and Megan have a nice back row, front row combination going right now.”
Jones was also impressed by Born’s 25 assists and is anticipating some good games from her team at the Pronghorn Invite at Farson on Oct. 6-7.
“This was a great conference win for us, and we are looking forward to some very good competition at the Farson Pronghorn Tournament this week,” Jones said.
