(Marissa, Ill.) - Marissa gave the Lady Falcons a smack in the mouth last Friday night, sending visiting Elverado home on the losing end of a 25-16, 25-17 straight-set sweep.
“We ran into a very scrappy Marissa team,” said EHS head coach Donette Wheatley. “We did our best digging their hard hits, but had a hard time turning those into offense. We played very hard tonight, it just didn’t get the job done.”
Morgan Bernardini and Hayli Havens each had 3 kills against Marissa. Bernardini also led the Falcons in digs with 8, and shared the team high in assists with Emma Yates (3). Emma Funk finished with 4 blocks.
Elverado did bring home a JV win, defeating Marissa 25-18, 22-25, 15-10 behind 7 kills from Chloe Barnes. Sydney Schenk led the junior varsity Lady Falcons in digs with 10.
