Shelby Tussles With Tuscola

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Shelbyville volleyball tussled with Tuscola on Thursday night and rode the roller coaster to a 3-game win, 25-12, 19-25, 25-18.

The Shelbyville program managed a sweep, but it wasn't easy. Shelby fresh-soph came back from a bad game 1 loss to win in three in nip 'n tuck fashion, 11-25, 16-14, 15-11. Shelby JV, likewise, had to come back from a 3-point game 1 loss, to win game 2 by four points and game 3 by six points.

The roller coaster ride continued in the varsity tilt. Shelby came out smokin' doubling up the Warriors score in game 1, 25-12.

"This was a long hot match," said Ram coach Lisa Peifer. "We played really well the first game, although Tuscola helped us out at the service line with missed serves."

Posperity led to a let down by the Rams and they didn't put Tuscola away, losing game 2 by six points, 19-25.

"We let up the second game and our pace just slowed a lot," Coach Peifer said. "Tuscola started getting good blocks up against us and we didn't adjust well. Finally the 3rd game, we got on a roll and finshed out the match. I think consistency is the key for these girls. We played so hard that sometimes we forget to talk. Overall, it was a good win though."

Brandy Smith was on fire for the Ram attack. Smith swung for 10 kills. She also was a key net defender with a team-high 3 blocks, tallying 13 net points.

Madison Boone was also a double-digit performer, but not at the net, on defense. Boone anchored the mid-court defense with a team-high 11 digs.

Setters Courtney Williams and Lindsey Eigsti split the 16 assists leading to 18 kills (88%).

The Ram net defense held a block party, recording nine blocks. Smith had three, Boone two, Rachel Fox two and Kelcie Darnell and Claudia Watson one each. The mid-court defense registered 26 digs.
