Dragon volleyball sweeps final home match against Wray Eagles
HHS senior volleyball players were facing their final opponents on the home court, and parents were being recognized for all they do to support the team throughout the season. Adding to the already exciting evening Oct. 12, Holyoke pulled off a win over the Wray Eagles 3-0.
Wray had an impressive show of support from the stands, and the Eagle volleyball team didn’t go down without a fight. But Holyoke came ready to play, too.
Coach Hannah Petersen described the Dragons as a different team than they were at the beginning of the year. They went after the ball and fought for every single point. In particular, she said, there were several plays throughout the game that the team may have given up on earlier in the year. In that Wray match, however, they did a really good job of not giving up.
Throughout the three sets, the Dragons showed their aggressive side. Kristin Vieselmeyer made 33 attacks, nine of which were kills, and Taeryn Trumper posted seven kills in 25 attacks. Kaylee Camblin managed 20 assists to kills in her 92 ball handling attempts.
Emily Jelden was also a force to be reckoned with, having eight digs in Friday night’s game.
Across the roster, HHS showed impressive serves. Emma Roll had 16 attempts with two aces, while Taeryn Trumper had 12 attempts with three aces. Jelden posted two aces in 10 attempts, and Camblin managed one ace in 10 attempts.
In serves received, Vieselmeyer led with 18. She, Taylor Trumper and Josie Herman posted one block apiece.
