Friday, September 23, 2011

BERRYVILLE -- The Berryville Lady Bobcats were at home once again on Monday night as the varsity team swept the Eureka Springs Highlanders 25-10, 25-4, 25-9.

It was a night of proper execution in all facets that propelled the Bobcats to victory.

"We served really well," head coach Kristin Whetham said.

The team has been working hard in practice the past few weeks to get a better handle on their serves and not giving up the easy points.

"The first few games we really gave away too many points," Whetham said.

Senior Jodi King had another big night on the court as she served for five points in the second match and eight points in the third.

Senior Kaylee Edens also had an effective night as she served for seven points in the second and third match.

However, no one served the ball as effectively as junior setter Emily Trowbridge.

The junior served for the Bobcats' first 11 points in the second set.

The junior varsity also had a productive night on the court, as they swept the Highlanders 25-5 and 25-9.

The varsity Bobcats have been on a roll as of late, winning three of their last four games. They will now hit the road as they have two road games next week.

They travel to Gravette on Tuesday, then head to Farmington on Thursday. Their next home game is Oct. 3
