Shelby 7th Sinks Sully, falls to Pana

The Shelbyville Lady Ram 7th grade volleyball squad took care of business against Sullivan in the 1st round of the Shelbyville Regional on Tuesday, 25-16, 22-25, 25-15. They then had to turn around and play #1 seed Pana later that night and took the #1 seed to three games before ending their season, 10-25, 25-13, 18-25.

The Shelby 7th had to grow up on the run this year and fought to get just above a .500 record by beating Sullivan in round 1. They still finished breaking even with the loss to Pana with a record of 10-10.

The Sullivan match was almost a mirror of a recent conference contest between the two teams. Shelby won that match, almost in two, but needed three games.

“This match was a little rocky for us, “ said Ram 7th coach Brittany Pierce. “We struggled at the service line all evening and did not communicate well at all. We had a couple of long service runs in the 3rd game to give us some much-needed momentum.”

Savannah Marty finished the match with 20 points and seven aces to lead the Rams at the line. Blair Rodman served 16 points with four aces. Kendyll Dunaway served 15 points with six aces. The Rams delivered 20 aces in the 3-game set.

Jordan Bruder and Rodman were the double-net threat, both with five of the 15 team kills. Marty had a team-high eight of the 12 assists. There wasn’t much digging defense by the Rams, but Emmalee Storm led with two digs.

“These girls are capable of more that what they showed in this match,” Coach Pierce said. “I hope they come out ready to play for the next match against Pana.”

They didn’t come out very strong in game 1 against Pana, but they did fight to make it a 3-game set.

“I couldn’t be prouder of the way these girls fought in this match,” Coach Pierce said. “We started out a little sluggish, but fought with all we had in games 2 and 3.”
