Stepping up their defensive game, the Perkins County Lady Plainsmen overtook Chase County in a crowd-pleasing dual for Parents’ Night, Thursday, Oct. 8 at home.
Prior to the game, parents of players and cheerleaders were introduced by Activities Director Chip Kay. Parents of seniors were presented with a rose from their player.
With a record standing at 13-5, the Lady Plainsmen won in three consecutive sets, 25-19, 25-22 and 27-25.
“I thought we played much better tonight on defense than we had the last couple of games,” said Coach Penny Hite. “Jenni Sis and Jessica Day did a great job for us in the back row on defensive digs.”
Day contributed 16 and Sis eight digs from the back of the court. Mackenzie Hite contributed 11 for the night.
Dominating at the net were sophomores Tanya Metcalf and Gabrielle Patrick, putting up 11 and 10 blocks respectively, and 10 and five kills. Also contributing high numbers in kills were Jessica Day with 10 and Jenni Sis, nine.
