Winamac wrapped up their last home game by defeating Culver in 3 sets (25-10, 25-8, 25-9) last night.
The Lady Warriors came out a little flat, maybe a little tired, after Monday night’s big game against N. Judson. However, even with the muted energy level they were still able to get the job done and force errors on the other side of the net. That seems to have been the key the last few games – minimizing errors. Even with the change in game pace from Monday to Tuesday, the girls were able to focus, adjust well and capitalize on the easier passes.
“We have had a great last week and a half with our practices and games. We have hit our groove and are finally playing as a team. Watching them run plays and support one another on and off the court is what we’ve been striving for all season. This is the way we want to head into sectionals,” said Coach Kasten.
McKenzie Hinz has really stepped up in a big way, pulling her weight opposite Maggie Smith. Hinz ended the night with 6 kills and 3 solo blocks, countering Smith’s 15 kills, 5 aces and 11 digs. Ella Gearhart rattled off another string of serves and ended the night with 5 aces and 3 digs. Aubrey Gearhart had 23 assists and 3 aces. Alyssa Villanueva also added 3 kills and 6 digs.
The Lady Warriors travel to Logansport Thursday Oct. 8 for their last regular season game.
