Serving up a win



Scoring 69 of 75 total match points on serve, the Brownstown Central volleyball team dominated Corydon Central on Tuesday in a Mid-Southern Conference match.

The Braves didn’t give up double-digit points in any set, as they cruised to a 25-4, 25-7, 25-7 victory.

Following a kill from senior Danielle Meyer, the Braves won 10 straight points behind serves from Morgan Wehmiller to take an 11-1 lead.

A kill from junior Brooke Meyer then set up an 8-0 Braves run with Richayla Huff serving.

Following the 25-4 first-set victory, the Braves opened up a 15-3 lead by using strong net play and consistent serving.

The Braves faced little resistance, and the Panthers amassed a handful of unforced errors in the 25-7 win.

Danielle Meyer once again got the Braves rolling with a kill to begin the third set, as the team took an early 4-0 advantage.

Before the final whistle, at 25-7 in the third set, the Braves were able to play all 14 girls dressed for the game.

Serving, Huff made all 24 attempts with eight aces, and Wehmiller was perfect on all 15 attempts with three aces.

Danielle Meyer led the Braves’ hitting unit, which made 47 of 50 attempts with 28 aces, making 14 of 14 attempts with eight kills.

Prior to Tuesday’s win, the Braves went through one of their toughest stretches of the season playing numerous ranked teams.

“We have been working really hard at practice because we’ve been playing some tough teams and losses recently,” Braves coach Jennifer Shade said. “We’re OK with that as long as we are competing with those teams. It’s been a really high level of volleyball and I think we have the confidence now to go in and take care of business.”

Shade said that she feels her team has depth, and it was nice that she could get all of her players out on the court against the Panthers.

“Everybody comes to practice and works hard, it’s kind of hard to decide who should even be on the court,” Shade said. “We have so many players that are aggressive and ready. It seems like every day someone shows us something great that shows us they deserve to be on the court. It’s awesome to get everyone playing and gaining experience.”

The Braves (10-6) will travel to Columbus North on Thursday.
