Lady Monsters Open up the Season on a Strong Note
Thatcher, AZ --
The Eastern Arizona women’s volleyball team began its 2009 campaign with a home win over visiting Chandler-Gilbert Wednesday night. The Gila Monsters were led in kills by sophomore transfer Dreanne Shaw as they posted a three-game sweep, 25-19, 27-25, and 25-19.
Despite the victory, Eastern Arizona head coach Shari Kay still sees plenty for the team to work on to achieve its potential. “We have to work on passing and serving,” Kay said, “which are our strengths, but (Wednesday) they were our weaknesses.”
Despite those weaknesses, the Gila Monsters were paced by Shaw, the reigning Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year.
Eastern Arizona (1-0 overall, 1-0 ACCAC) has just one day off before playing in a tournament at Yavapai College where it will play two matches Friday and two more on Saturday.
