The Cowgirls showed no fear against the Class D-1 defending state champs, Johnson-Brock, as the Sidney volleyball team swept the Eagles; 25-14, 25-11, 25-16, on Tuesday, August 28, at Johnson-Brock.
Johnson-Brock are the three-time defending state champions in Class D-1, in the state of Nebraska.
In 2017, the Eagles suffered only one loss on the season and won the state title against Meridian.
“The girls came out and played consistent, and played really well together,” Coach Amy McClintock said. “We were really scrappy tonight.”
Camryn McClintock lead the way with 10 kills followed by Kelsey Hobbie with eight. “Camryn had a decent night and Kelsey played lights out in the middle,” Coach McClintock said.
There was no way to determine on what athlete stood out, because everyone was involved in one way or another. “They all played well,” McClintock said. “Overall we played together. We served well, we passed well, and we did what we needed to do. Hopefully we can keep this momentum going.”
With Jaden Daffer back in the line up, not only does she bring leadership and energy, she brings a lot of speed to the back row Coach McClintock noted.
Kills: Presley Brumbaugh, Makenna Jarosz, four each; Maddy Duncan, two; Jaden Daffer and Olivia Larsen, one each.
Assists: Larsen, 28; Brumbaugh, two; Daffer and McClintock, one each.
The Cowgirls are now 5 and 2 on the year.
Sidney will be home to face Lenox and Heartland Christian on Thursday, August 30, beginning at 6 p.m.
