G-H spikers win pair

Tuesday, September 7, 2004

The Galva-Holstein High volleyball team swept a pair of games here Friday, beating Remsen-Union and Whiting.

The Lady Pirates opened the double dual with a 25-13, 25-15 and 25-12 sweep of Remsen Union.

Emily Schlinz led the way with nine kills, three digs and one block while teammate Kelli Beyer added one ace serve, five kills, five digs and two ace blocks.

In addition, Whitney Ramussen finished with four kills, six digs and one block while Deena Hudson added five kills, four digs and two ace blocks.

"We played a little sluggish," said G-H coach Scott Mitchell. "We are still adjusting to some switches in our offense. We hit pretty well when we passed the ball."

In game two, Galva-Holstein gained another sweep, this time pounding Whiting 25-6, 25-4 and 25-18.

Serving was a key for the Lady Pirates, who made good on 91 percent of their serves.

"I think we transitioned well from defense to offense," Mitchell said. "We got to see some different players in different positions and they all played well."

Schlinz was again the top offensive force for the Lady Pirates, finishing with seven kills, two digs and one block. She added six set assists.

Beyer added five ace serves, notching three kills, two digs and one block. Dani Boyle came in off the bench and notched five kills and two digs.

Chelsey Meyer added ten set assists for the Lady Pirates, who upped their overall record to 3-1 overall and in-conference.
