Lady Mallards improving, play better as unit in second match

(Sept. 13, 2013) Worcester Prep volleyball Coach Karen Hammer was pleased with the Lady Mallards’ performance during last Friday’s match against Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Cougars, despite losing in three games.

“We played well and fought hard,” Hammer said.

Mt. Carmel won the first game 25-17 and the second 25-18. The Cougars earned the victory, topping the Mallards 25-21 in the third game.

Prep junior Cecily Sass had seven assist, five kills, one ace and a block in the loss. Freshman newcomer Karlie Southcomb tallied three aces, five kills and a block and senior captain Claire Stickler recorded three aces, six digs and five kills.

Hammer said, “The team as a whole performed as a unit better. Serves were more consistent [and there were] less errors” compared to the Mallards’ season opener against the Salisbury Christian Jaguars two days earlier. Salisbury won 25-5, 25-23 and 25-15.

Stickler logged four digs and five kills and senior captain Bethany Wolpin had an assist and three digs.

On Monday, the Mallards will take a trip to Greenwood, Del., to face the Greenwood Mennonite Flames.

Worcester Prep freshman Karlie Southcomb blocks a hit during last Friday’s match against Mt. Carmel in Berlin.
