Lady Volunteers let victory slip away
KINGMAN - Experience won the day as Bradshaw Mountain put away Lee Williams in high school Division III volleyball action Wednesday in Prescott Valley. The Lady Vols had Bradshaw (4-2) on the ropes, but the Lady Bears held on 25-21, 21-25, 25-23, 11-25, 15-13.
"We were the better team, but they had seven seniors," said LWHS volleyball coach Traci Rosenbach. "Their experience definitely won over our inexperience."
The Lady Vols have one senior on the squad, Marli Lauck.
Tori Logan and Sadie Snay led Lee Williams (3-3) with 11 kills each. Snay also had 31 assists and was 11-for-11 serving. Logan was 10-for-10 serving and had 14 digs. Khori Cobanovich made 15 digs, and Madi Arave and Sidney Clark each added 10. Chania Scott blocked four Bradshaw shots.
"Our hitting wasn't great again," Rosenbach said. "But our blocking, defense, serve-receive and serving were good. You could physically see us tense up in Game 5."
The Lady Vols look to gain momentum at the Estrella Foothills tournament today and Saturday in Goodyear before resuming the regular season at River Valley Monday.
GIRLS GOLF: Havasu edges Lady Vols
Lee Williams fell to Lake Havasu 213-220 Wednesday at Cerbat Cliffs Golf Course. Kingman did not post a qualifying score with only one golfer on the course.
Kaylee Moore and Sarah White each shot 18-over-par 54s to lead the Lady Vols.
"It was a tough, tough day in the wind," said LWHS girls golf coach Haley Bradley.
