Lady Cardinals Split Regular Season Finale Against Lady Eagles
The 7th Grade team won in 2 sets with scores of 25-19 and 25-22.  Serving for SLS was Mimi Smith, Campbell Miles, Ella King, and Ashley Hunter all with 6pts each, Gina Grote with 5pts, and Ava Hollins with 1pt.  These ladies did a great job of handling The Lady Eagles fast-paced game by slowing it down with a bump, set, and hit.  In the end, this got us the lead and the win.  Nice job ladies. 

The 8th Grade Girls lost in 2 sets against JCD with scores of 25-17 and 25-21.  Serving for SLS were Meg Ritter with 10pts 3aces, Lucy Abplanalp 3pts 1 ace, Cora Roth with 3pts, Rachel Suttmann with 2pts 2 aces, Felicity Brelage with 2pts 1 ace, Ashley Hunter with 2pts, and Isabel Imel with 1pt.  Game 1 was a back and forth game for both teams which didn’t work in our favor.  Game 2 was much more lively and Meg Ritter led us with a 10pt serving streak to gain us the lead, but we just couldn’t finish it out.  These ladies gave great efforts and worked hard and the coach is proud of them.

Trojans Coach Cassie Laker’s Comments.
‘We had quite the different performance this go around. We cut our service errors in half and drastically improved our serve receive. It was definitely our focus: serve and pass at a high level! The girls were aggressive from the start. How we will play on senior night is always a concern as a coach. This was an important game for us, and the girls did a great job of not letting the emotion of the night take over. They played hard all night which kept the energy up. We did a great job of minimizing errors and not committing many consecutive errors which can easily change the momentum of a game. And our crowd was fantastic! The student section, middle school teams, parents, family, and friends brought their A-game which just fed our intensity!’ 

Varsity is now 10-6 on the season and 4-0 in the EIAC. Next up: EIAC match at home against Connersville on Thursday. JV starts at 5.
