Shelbyville Drops Match To Maroa

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Shelbyville volleyball had to face one of the best teams in the conference on Thursday. The Rams competed, but couldn’t tip the scales in their favor, losing 21-25, 23-25.

“This was a hard fought match,” said Ram coach Lisa Peifer. “We knew going in that this was going to be a tough one against the Trojans. Our defense really stepped it up. We had a lot of fire, but didn’t come out on top.”

The Rams had 20 kills and 7 blocks in two games. They had 27 digs.

Libero Sammy Hendrix led the Shelby defense with nine digs, while Alissa Hudson stepped up her defense to get seven digs.

Brooke Eisenbarth led the hit crew with six kills and a block (7 net points).

“Brooke Eisenbarth played very well, passing and taking aggressive swings at the ball,” Coach Peifer said. “All in all, it was a fun match to watch.”

Sophomore Madison Boone, who had five kills and three blocks (8 net points), and Taylor Wilcox, who had five kills and a block (6 net points). Brandy Smith also had two blocks.  

Smith and Maggie Bosgraaf led the Rams at the line with 10 points each. Smith had two aces. Bosgraaf dished 15 assists towards the 20 kills.
