ND falls to Bosse
ELNORA — The North Daviess volleyball team fell in three games to Evansville Bosse on Monday, 25-11, 25-15 and 25-20.
“Last night we faced a more athletic Bosse team. We had some very solid play in spurts. We are small and we let their size influence us at the net. By the 3rd set, I felt we were more comfortable and realized we could hit around their middles and find the floor, it was just a little late in the match,” said ND coach Gina Ingram.
The Cougars were led by Dakota McNabb, with two kills, one dig, two aces; Kaylan Craven with three kills, eight digs, two aces; Mya Knepp with six kills, five digs; Megan Marner with three digs, one ace, one block assist; Jaryn Gingerich had two digs, one block assist, while Marley Fuqua and Reagan Knepp combined for three digs.
