Despite loss, Coach Purnell proud of Seahawks’ effort

(Oct. 3, 2014) The Stephen Decatur volleyball team lost in three games to the Parkside Rams on Tuesday in Berlin, but Lady Seahawks’ Coach Sarah Purnell was proud of her players’ effort.

Parkside won the first game, 25-11, and the second, 25-16. Decatur fought back to tie the third game 11-11, but the visiting Rams outscored the home team 14-4 to earn a 25-15 victory.

“While the scores don’t necessarily reflect the girls’ efforts, they really played hard. This is the first game all season where I felt like our girls clicked well all three matches,” Purnell said. “Their passing was much better, they were making great plays and they were playing smart. Our stats were pretty spread out, which hasn’t happened this season either. I was very proud of my girls and how hard they played.”

Senior Marina Jones had five kills. Junior Marley Parsons and seniors Victoria Williams and captain Hannah Adkins each tallied three kills. Ellen Bargar, a junior, contributed with four digs and three kills, and senior Haley Trice recorded seven assists. Senior Kayla Heinz had four digs and five assists.

The Seahawks will take a trip to Queen Anne’s County to face the Lions today, Friday, at 5:30 p.m.
