Shelby 7th Sinks Sully, falls to Pana


After dropping game 1, 25-10, the Rams came back and turned the tables on Pana in game 2, winning 25-13.

Rodman and Bruder were once again the double-net threat. They were also the team leaders at the service line. They had four kills each of the 10 team kill-total. The Rams only served five aces, but Bruder had three of them. Bruder served 14 points and Rodman 11.

Bailee Buckles had a team-high four assists with Marty recording three.

One thing the Rams did do a lot of was mid-court defense. They recorded 26 digs. Shayla Darnell led the way with six digs, Marty and Buckles had four each and Bruder, Storm and Rodman had three each. Eight different Rams recorded digs.

Pana was led by a trio of players at the line and a quartet at the net. Danielle Epley served 10 points with two aces. Aubrey Funneman served nine points with three aces. Claire Holthaus served eight points with a team-high five aces.

Funneman and Grayson Beyers led the net attack with six kills each, Funneman and Grayson both added solo blocks for seven net points, each. Epley followed with five kills and Holthaus swung for four.

Holthaus and Epley also led the mid-court defense with six and five digs, respectively. Funneman dished out a team-high eight assists of the team’s 12 successful sets.

“The girls played with a lot of heart,” Coach Pierce said. But ultimately, we just couldn’t put a ball away. I know these girls are disappointed to see their season end, but I am so proud of the growth and improvement they’ve shown.”

Shelbyville (10-10, 4-5 Okaw) has a make-up match hosting Maroa on Friday at 4 p.m. Pana plays Meridian (#2-seed) on Thursday for the Shelbyville Regional Championship at 6 p.m.
