ND loses close match
SOLSBERRY — The North Daviess volleyball team dropped a close four-game match with Eastern Greene on Wednesday, 25-20, 19-25, 28-30, 23-25.
“Tonight was a barn burner. We had four hard-fought sets between two teams that wanted to win. It was a shame that any team walked out of the gym on the losing end, but that is why we play the game. I was very proud of how the girls stayed in the match after winning the 1st set, we fought hard in the third to push it extra points for a score of 28-30 and the fourth set came down to a score of 23-25. We struggled at times getting a side-out, plays when EG would run some points. We need to have a player that steps up and says, ‘this stops here’ and makes the play. Our serving wasn’t as sharp as it has been, it is never a good time to miss a serve. Tonight it just seemed to hurt more than most,” said Gina Ingram. “We had some good rallies and good team oriented play. We just have to finish matches. We have the ability, we just fell short tonight. We are playing hard, and that is huge. We just need to be more confident and consistent and it will come.”
ND was led by Kaylan Craven with two aces, 10 kills, 16 digs; Jaryn Gingerich with twp aces, two kills, four digs, two assists; Megan Marner with two aces, seven kills, 12 digs, Mya Knepp with two aces, 19 kills, three blocks, 11 digs; Macey Wagler with 35 assists, 11 digs; Dakota McNabb with one kill, eight digs; and Reagan Knepp with an ace.

“I’m so proud of the three seniors and all the time and work they have put into this program. They deserve all the success we have had this year and hope to keep this season rolling for them! Madi (McClure), Makayla (Sipes), and Melida (Ajradinoska) are exactly what you want in an athlete.
