The St. Louis Lady Cardinals hosted their last home game of the season against the Batesville Lady Bulldogs.  We celebrated our one 8th grader Lucy Abplanalp and shared some love with the 8th graders of BMS also.   

The 7th-Grade game went into 3 sets giving the Dogs a run for their money.  While the Cardinals fell short we ended with scores of 25-10, 23-25, and 15-8.  Scoring points for SLS were Ava Hollins and Ella King with 6pts each, Bridget Lohmueller with 5pts 1 ace, Campbell Miles with 5pts, and Mimi Smith with 1pt 1 ace.  These ladies communicated well and defensively found ways to back up one another and make the plays.  I couldn’t be more proud of how they played and what they brought to these games last night.    

The 8th-Grade Lady Cardinals lost in 2 sets last night.  Falling with scores of 25-9 and 25-10.  While Batesville brought a tall line up ready to swing it was their serving that threw us off.  We went through spurts of serve receive issues, but never once gave up.  Scoring for SLS were Bridget Lohmueller with 1pt, Lucy Abplanalp with 2pts, Cora Roth with 1pt, and Meg Ritter with 1 pt.  Nice job ladies way to stick with it and give it your all.

ECVB vs Batesville 9-15-20

Like our first match a couple of weeks ago, it was an exciting match to be a part of. We were coming off an extremely rough weekend at Zionsville a few days before, so I wasn’t quite sure what team was going to show up. But the girls came out fired up and fought hard through a lot of ups and downs. Our serve receive struggled to get the ball in front of the 10-ft line, but our setters did better at still pushing the ball to our hitters. Seniors Allison Huismann and Jessie Stenger seem to be finding their connection as the season progresses and it showed that night. Our freshman and JV teams brought some added energy in the fourth set to help us finish strong and get the win! Overall, it was a great bounce-back win for us.  

Varsity is now 9-6 on the season and 3-0 in the EIAC.  

Next up: Lawrenceburg on Tuesday. Freshmen start at 5, JV will follow, then senior night, then varsity.
