Central Edges Laramie In 5 Set Thriller
"Improvement" was the key phrase used by Laramie head coach Jill Stucky.
Although disappointed with a rough 5th set Tuesday night, Jill and the Lady Plainsmen are happy with the direction their team is headed. "We're a team that struggled early at making some simple plays" Stucky said. "We're starting to make smarter plays. We're starting to hit at a higher efficiency and starting to make better decision."
Scores in the contest went 25-13, 19-25, 25-20, 20-25, and 8-15. Central's Lauren Lyons served successfully seven times in a row to begin the 5th set, giving the Lady Indians a 7-0 lead.
Senior Emma Murphy led the Lady Plainsmen with 12 kills and 10 blocks. Junior Reilley Baty set for 31 assists, while Senior Natalie Davis had 16 digs.
Laramie drops to 3-11 overall on the season. They play at Cheyenne South Friday and host Cheyenne East Tuesday, September 24th.
