Not Seahawks’ best performance, but girls get win

(Oct. 11, 2013) It wasn’t the Stephen Decatur volleyball team’s best performance, but the Lady Seahawks still won Monday’s volleyball match against the Wi-Hi Indians in less than an hour.

“I thought we started out very slow and flat-footed, and I thought throughout the three games we were just making silly mistakes. We weren’t playing very smart,” said Decatur Coach Sarah Zimmer. “We were making it too easy for Wi-Hi. I think when our competition is a little down they tend to play down (to their opponent’s level).”

The Seahawks won the first game 25-12 on their home court in Berlin. They outscored the Indians 25-17 in the second.

Wi-Hi took a 6-1 lead in the third, but Decatur fought back and evened the score at 10 as junior Kayla Heinz served two aces. The Seahawks went on to earn a 25-18 victory to take the match.

“There were glimpses of really great plays and great passing, but for the most part it just seemed a little off,” Zimmer said. “I wish that we could do a little bit better job of talking, and just the simple, basic things of volleyball I think we tend to struggle with, which is hard for me to understand, because we work on it every day in practice.”

Senior captain Taylor Black had seven aces, eight kills and one block in the win. Katie VanBruggen, a senior captain, chipped in with five kills and senior Kiley Cooke tallied six aces and five kills. Seniors Ashley DePaul and Sammi Quilter each had eight digs.

Decatur has four games remaining in the regular season. The Seahawks will head to Salisbury on Monday to face the Parkside Rams.

Stephen Decatur senior captain Katie VanBruggen lunges to make contact with the ball during Monday’s match against Wi-Hi.
