(Mounds, Ill.) - The Lady Falcons brought home their second straight victory last Thursday night, winning at Meridian 25-13, 25-16 behind a team-high 6 kills from Emma Funk.
"This was a match where a few different kids got to see some varsity action," said EHS head coach Donette Wheatley. "We got a little sloppy in the second set missing four serves, and we are still working on our set placement. It just has to be better. The passes are there, the sets have to be there. When you have hitters like Allie (Whittington), Emma and Jess (Elson), we have to utilize them and get the ball where they like it."
Allie Whittington added 4 kills, and Jessica Sarensen and Jessica Elson each had 2. Morgan Bernardini led the defense with 4 digs, Teigan Rury and Morgan Cashion each added 3. Leia Bryant had 6 assists.
Elverado's J-V team was also victorious in a single-set match, 25-3.
