CLINTON -- The Cloverdale girls' volleyball team posted its first win of the season by defeating South Vermillion 25-10, 25-6 and 25-17.
"We played much better tonight," CHS head coach Kathy Moore commented. "We were hitting the ball harder and playing tougher at the net."
Helping lead the Clovers was Kaileigh Sparks, who collected 10 points, five aces, six digs and 13 assists on the night. Allie Franklin also had a solid night with 13 points, 13 digs, two aces and two kills. Kristin McCammon recorded eight kills, one ace and 16 digs.
Elizabeth Cheatham owned the net, collecting nine blocks and three stuffs in the contest. Alesha Evans and Whitney Bond added two blocks each. Kristin McCammon recorded eight kills, one ace and 16 digs.
Moore explained that South Vermillion is in a rebuilding year and had difficulties passing the ball. The match allotted the Clovers the opportunity to get players in a rotation to get some valuable time on the court.
"We were able to play a lot of people tonight so that the bench could gain some experience. Our next opponent, Clay City, will be a tougher match," Moore said.
The Cloverdale junior varsity also picked up a win, downing South Vermillion 25-10 and 25-16
The Clovers (1-1) will host Clay City at 6 p.m. tonight.
