On Saturday; SK knocked off Dixie for the second time this season by identical scores of 25-20. Dixie has improved greatly since the last time SK saw them. This was a game where SK had to claw for the dub and they did so against a scrappy Dixie team. Key stats for the match; Amarah Nicholson with 6 kills and 5 blocks, Haley Robinson with 7 kills, Sarah Sergent with 27 assists and Schmee with 16 digs.
In the Gold semifinal versus Campbell County, SK came out in the first set and looked terrible, losing by a score of 25-10; their lowest losing score of the season. The good thing was SK seemed to take getting punched in the gut to heart as they came back to take the second set by a score of 25-18, forcing the third set to determine the Cake finalist. The third set saw two teams play a very even match that was back and forth. SK was down 10-14 and came back to force overtime points but ended up losing 16-14. They could have won the third match but couldn’t catch a break that got them over the hump. Haley had 6 kills, Amarah with 4 kills and 4 blocks and Sarah posted 20 assists and Schmee had 24 digs.
Overall, an encouraging weekend where SK didn't roll over when getting knocked down. Nice job girls; you can do this.
SK will wrap up the regular “scrimmage” season tomorrow night on senior night versus New Cath before the real season begins next week.
