The Bishop volleyball team had a long and exciting weekend of volleyball at the Yerington tournament. This young team who played without their one senior, Lilly Morrison, who is out due to a slight hamstrings strain, showed their depth, athleticism, and ability to play as a team as they competed against much larger schools and more experienced senior players.
They played three matches on Friday and went one and two, and went out to compete in the silver bracket going 3-0 and making it into the silver bracket playoffs. As Coach Frigerio expected, this group of juniors and sophomores improved steadily every single match.
Stats highlights on the weekend:
Junior Liz Ellsworth continues to lead the team in hitting percentage and kills as the lefty is difficult to stop as a middle hitter. Junior Delaney Kalk is close behind her in kills per set while Peyton Kalk dominated the net leading the team in solo blocks. P could soon become the bishop “roofer.”
Sophomore Riley Van Nest led the team in serving and aces as well as providing the team tremendous depth as a setter and hitter. Sophomore libero Sophie Dishion was a defensive dynamo with lights out passing – leading the Broncos in serve receptions and digs.
Juniors captain Meghenna Westervelt’s leadership and Scout Flynn’s hustle were also positive factors over the .500 weekend.
Please come to support the Bronco volleyball team at their first home match this Friday versus Immanuel Christian. JV match is at 4 followed by the varsity match.
