The Holly varsity volleyball team is one match away from finishing the first half of the Stripes Division title race in the Flint Metro League.
The Bronchos (3-1) stayed one match out of first place, and still holds control of their own destiny to earn at least a share of the league title, after crushing Kearsley 25-8, 25-11, 25-14 Wednesday.
“It was a total team effort,” Holly varsity volleyball coach Deena Mahr said. “We went into the game with a clear mindset of what needed to be done and how we needed to play. Each of the girls stepped up and contributed in their own positions.”
Nicole Jewell had a strong night. She led the squad with seven aces and 16 assists. And despite her spending a good chunk of the match as the team’s setter, she still led the Bronchos with seven kills. Samantha Randall had six kills while Kennedy Hogan chipped in five kills. Defensively, Sydnie Meszler had six digs while Delaney Jenkinson had five digs. Meszkler had four aces. Amanda Patterson had just four hitting attempts but was efficient with them, collecting three kills.
“Outside of our stat leaders players like Danielle Coleman and Miah Beck contributed to a strong serving game,” Maher said. “It was a complete team win and the girls should be very proud of how they played together.”
Holly (3-1 in the Metro) completes the first round of league play Wednesday when the Bronchos play at Swartz Creek.
