“Belle played an outstanding game and we did not,” coach Renae Schneider said. “I think when they connected on their first kill, we had the ‘deer in the headlights’ look.”
The Lady Wildcats end their season at 13-16.
Sierra Davies was five of six serving, seven of 10 hitting with one kill, 11 of 12 receiving and had one solo block and one block assist. Jalee Johnson was three of three serving, 40 of 40 setting with six assists and 14 of 16 receiving.

“We will miss our five seniors (Spring, Fierro, Uhrich, Davies and Malinosky), however, the future looks very promising,” Schneider said. “We have a big freshman class this year. If they work out and work on their jumping skills, they will have a bright career.”
