Brady makes quick work of triangular
The Eagles made quick work of South Loup at the Medicine Valley triangular Sept. 17.
Brady won the first set 25-11 and followed with another powerful performance in the second set 25-16.
Head coach Lynne Johnson said her team served really well and forced South Loup to try and make plays they weren’t able to.
“We have girls on our team that were more experienced, and that have played more than they had,” Johnson said. “That was the biggest difference in the teams.”
Senior Valerie Most had nine kills in the match, leading the Eagles. She was complemented by Madison Elliot and Josie Palmer, who each had six kills.
Brady faced host Medicine Valley capping the triangular.
This game was more difficult than the one prior, Johnson said.
“Medicine Valley played good defense against us in both sets,” she said.
In the first set, the Eagles used a 14-1 lead to propel them to a 25-18 win in the first set.
Johnson said Medicine Valley came out with more intensity in the second set that Brady didn’t match.
“We let up on the intensity throughout the second set, and missed more serves than we normally do,” she said.
The Eagles escaped with a 25-22 victory.
Most was again the leader in kills with six, and this time Tara Callahan added five to help push past the Raiders in the second and final set.
