Shelby finishes off Senior Night

Shelbyville volleyball finished the regular season by taking care of business on Senior Night, whooping Warrensburg, 25-12, 25-21.

“This was a nice win on Senior Night. The girls played well and with a lot of fine most of the night,” said Ram coach Lisa Peifer. “The 1st game, we went at them aggressively and, even with five service errors, won by alarge margin.”

The 25-12 blitz in game 1 was a nice start after the Rams failed to finish well on Tuesday against Maroa.

“The 2nd game was neck and neck until 20-20, when we finally showed the grit to take the match,” Coach Peifer said. “We have seemed to stop playing at 20-20, so I was glad to see us finish. I’m really proud of the kids and the support we had here for our seniors.”

Brandy Smith was a double-digit performer, serving 15 points with an ace. She also led at the net with five kills and one block (6 net points). Madison Boone joined her at the net with six kills.

Net defense was led by Ryann Ambrose, who has stepped up lately as a wall. She recorded three of the eight Ram blocks and also had three kills (6 net points). Kelcie Darnell added two blocks.

Courtney Williams was very active. She dished a team-high nine assists and served eight points with a team-high two aces. She also got down for a team-high 5 digs.

Senior soldier Bailey Ambrose saw action and swung for three kills and added a block (4 net points).

Shelbyville 18-12 (8-3 Okaw) heads to the annual Mt. Pulaski pre-postseason tourney on Saturday. Shelbyville (#2) opens regional play on Tuesday at the Pana 2A Regional, playing Teutopolis (#3) at 7 p.m.
