The Western Hills volleyball team served well and served often in a 25-10, 25-16 pounding of Beth Haven Thursday at Western Hills.
"We played very well as a team today," Lady Wolverine coach Kristi Buffenmyer said of her squad. "All seven girls that played did a fantastic job."
The Lady Wolverines got off to a great start against the Bearcats, as Laura Steele opened the match with seven straight points off serve, including an ace. Caroline Wingate had two kills, Page Davis one and Brittany Cable made a spectacular dig during the run as well.
Buffenmyer said Steele was moved to the first server especially for this match.
"Laura does a good job of zone serving so we moved her up to the first server. It helped us out quite a bit with the rotation," Buffenmyer said. "I'm real proud of her. She did a great job."
Western Hills played consistently well the remainder of the first match. Now ahead 21-9, seventh-grader Shana Ayers served the next three points for WHHS, and after a side-out, Western Hills closed out the game when Beth Haven served the ball into the net.
