Lady Monsters Rally to Defeat Visiting Lady Coyotes

vb

“Go out there and play like a #20 ranked team,” Coach Kay announced to her players before the match. Showing true heart the Lady Monsters defeated Chandler Gilbert, the #10 ranked team for Division II. The match had five heart pounding games. Falling behind the first two games, defense needed to pick up to win the next three. Proving how smart this team plays, they filled in the holes with massive defense, which was a big part of their win against Chandler-Gilbert. Libero Laura Kartchner had a huge 35 digs, while Raveon Harrowa took 28 balls herself. Defensive blocks were big last night by Freshman Hannah DeWitt and Jasmine Smith with a total of 17 blocks. Doing well all across the board, Tiffany Godfrey had 13 kills, 6 blocks, and 22 digs. Tenacious offense led to a team total of over 50 kills. The large number of kills could have never happened without the drive of setters Amber Angle and Jessica Romney.

Going into the second round of conference play, the Lady Monsters face Mesa this Friday. Now 7-2 in the conference and 17-7 overall, the Lady Monsters have their eyes set to break into the top 10 in the Nation.
