EAST LIVERPOOL OH- The Beaver Local volleyball team came into Monday night looking to strengthen their grip on the Buckeye 8 standings. That grip tightened quickly as the first place Beavers made quick work of visiting Indian Creek in three sets 25-14, 25-23, 25-17.
Beaver Local came out of the gate quickly behind a strong offensive attack. Senior Brooke Talbot helped lead that charge by taking advantage at the service line with a team high 8 aces on the night. Talbot also contributed 7 kills and 11 digs for the victors. Elizabeth Kolkowski once again filled the stat sheet with 10 kills and 2 blocks. Head Coach Sarah Lowe took notice of the Senior Middle Hitter’s efforts “They had no answer for our offense tonight, Elizabeth put everything away she touched at the net”.
Emma Joseph helped set up that offensive attack with a team high 18 assists. Seniors Bailey Bowersock 7 kills / 11 digs and Leah Riccardo 6 kills / 5 digs filled the stat sheet as well for the Red and White. Kodi Kinsey, who could be the area’s best Libero, contributed 19 digs. Chloe Reed also came away with 6 digs defensively for the Beavers.
Bowersock recognized her team’s winning efforts “We knew they were going to be ready to play. We hustled to every ball and was able to maintain that effort throughout the night”. The Beavers now have a week to fine tune their skills, as Thursday’s game with East Liverpool has been postponed until Saturday Sept 25? due to Covid 19 protocols.
Next up for Beaver Local (8-1) will be a trip to Jefferson County next Monday to face Edison Local.
