KIS 8th Grade Volleyball Team Beats Vikings, Falls to Raiders
October 3, 2007 - Knightstown’s eighth grade volleyball team knocked of host Blue River, but then fell to Shenandoah in the Lady Viking tourney held Saturday.
The Lady Panthers whipped Blue River in the first match 22-25, 25-18 and 15-3, settling down after a slow start.
“We got behind the first game of the match and then decided we wanted to play,” Knightstown Coach Lisa Roberts said. “The girls came back and really played a good match to land them a place in the championship.”
Shay Pope served seven of the 15 points in the final game of the match. On the day, Pope had seven aces, four kills and one defensive dig. Michelle Hochstedler had four aces, one assist and four kills. Emma Shepherd and Ariel Sturgill both had kills, while Sturgill served for three points. Kaelee Kuhn and Margaret Pedigo both had two aces, while Hochstedler and Katie Wilfong both had two digs.
Shenandoah defeated the Lady Panthers in the championship game of the tournament, winning in two games 25-21 and 25-16.
“Shenandoah was ready to play,” Roberts said. “We had beaten them last year and they were waiting for revenge. They are a very good team that reads the floor well, and that caused us to scramble to get into coverage. The girls played a well-fought battle and I was really proud of them for not giving up and fighting to the last point.”
Katie Wilfong had three passes to target, one kill and one dig in a good all-around game.
“Katie played an exceptional match,” Roberts said. “She was aggressive on the net and really came to life during this match.”
Shay Pope had a team-high six kills in the match to go a long with six service points. Kaelee Kuhn had seven service points, while Kelsie Robinson and Michelle Hochstedler added six apiece.
The girls host Mt. Vernon Thursday night, with the first match beginning at 6 p.m.
