SHS cruises past Cape Central

Tuesday, September 11, 2001

SIKESTON -- The Sikeston Lady Bulldogs soundly defeated the Cape Central Lady Tigers volleyball team Monday night in two straight sets, 15-6, 15-3.

"Cape is in a transition period," said Sikeston head coach Steve Beydler. "They have had three coaches in the past three years. They are just trying to get the basics down and get things going again."

The Lady Bulldogs quickly took an early 5-1 lead early lead in the first. Cape Central took a time out to talk things over, but that timeout did little to slow the Lady Bulldogs. After the timeout the Lady Bulldogs continued to dominate eventually defeating the Lady Tigers 15-6 in the first set.

Things went quite the same for the Lady Bulldogs in the second set as they continued their dominance of the Lady Tigers.

The Lady Bulldogs won the second set, handily defeating the Lady Tigers 15-3.

Joy Daniel led the team in kills with eight, followed by Jaime Medlin and Shavonna Dirickson each checking in with three. Summer Ray and Felming Silverthorn also added a kill each.

Sikeston will be back in action on Wednesday night traveling to Notre Dame, then will be at home Thursday facing Poplar Bluff.

"My girls played their hearts out tonight," said NMCC coach Sonya Pixley. "This was a good morale booster for us. Caruthersville is a very strong team, we played good and everyone kept a positive attitude. This was a good win for us."

Ashley Brittian led the Lady Eagles with four aces and five kills. Megan Lange had a good night as well, ending with three aces and six kills.

Kendra Gregg added three blocks and seven kills. Elizabeth Myracle finished the night with two aces, three blocks, and five kills.
