Lady Knights Make Short Work Of Whitko

The Southwood varsity volleyball team made short work of Whitko Thursday, getting off to a fast start and not looking back in a 25-17, 25-18, 25-13 sweep.

Sarah Peters would record a kill to get things started as the Knights jumped out to a 12-2 lead. Kaitlyn Murphy and Emilie Harnish had kills during the run with Sami White and Murphy recording aces. The lead would stay at 10 until 16-6 when Delayne Gentry served an ace. Aided with kills from Peters and Murphy the Knights built their lead to 23-10 before Whitko scored 7 straight to make it 23-17. The Knights would go on to win game one 25-17.

Game two was much the same. Trailing 0-1 Peters would start the Knight scoring with a kill as Southwood scored 6 of the next 6 game points to lead 6-3. Whitko cut the lead to 7-6 when Harnish got a kill followed by three straight kills from Peters to jump out to an 11-6 lead. The Knights would build a 17-9 lead off three Murphy kills, but the Wildcats started to peck away and eventually cut the Southwood lead to 20-16. Harnish would stop the Whitko momentum with a kill that was followed by a Peters kill and a Bailey Lundmark block. Sami White would end the game on a tip to the corner for a 25-18 win and a 2-0 lead.

It looked like the Knights could have a let down in game three, trailing 1-3 when the fuse lit. Kills from Bailey Hobbs, Harnish and Peters gave the Knights a 6-3 lead, but Whitko hung tough and tied the game at 8. At that point it was lights out as Peters and Lundmark took control of the net and with Harnish serving the Knights went on a 10 point run to open an 18-8 lead. Murphy and Harnish would get kills down the stretch with Lundmark scoring on a block as the Knights cruised to a 25-13 win and a 3-0 final.
