(Zeigler, Ill.) - The Lady Falcons used a 25-13, 25-6 thrashing of Evansville (Christ Our Savior Lutheran) on Tuesday, October 29 to advance into the semifinals of the Zeigler-Royalton volleyball regional, where they will meet the tournament host on Wednesday evening.
“We had a slow start, but once we got going we played well,” said Elverado head coach Donette Wheatley. “We can’t start slow from here on out, the competition is going to get stiffer starting tomorrow against Z-R. We have to stay focused and play our game.”
Stat leaders for EHS against COSL were Kaity Lewis with 9 kills, Morgan Bernardini with 6 digs, and Emma Yates with a dozen assists. Bernardini also led service aces with 4.
If the Lady Falcons can come away with a win over Z-R on Wednesday, they will tie the school record for wins in a varsity volleyball season.
