Pure heart and the willingness not to give up no matter what the score was on the board was the key to the Lady Comets Varsity win over Wilmington Tuesday night 26-24, 26- 24. RC was trailing in both games but never thought the match was over. Emily Wolf led the way for the night by putting up 5 aces with 3 of them coming in the second game when we were down 21-24 to tie it up and then serve the last 2 points to take the game. Wolf also had 16 digs with Madelyn Alton not too far behind her with 13 along with her 4 kills and 4 aces. Hailey Hamilton also had a great match with 4 kills, 2 digs, and a block. The team never gave up the fight and the girls and the crowd went wild after the win!
The JV team fell short against Wilmington losing in 3: 17-25, 25-19, 20-25. Brodie Thompson had an amazing night defensively with 18 digs along with her 2 kills. To also help the team was Jenna Tiangco by having 12 digs, 2 kills, and 2 aces. Danielle Cherry had 15 assists and 12 digs too.
The Freshman team won against Wilmington 25-20, 25-17. Maddie McPherson had 4 aces, 7 digs, and 2 kills. Jenna Tiangco, again, had an impact on the win with 4 kills, 6 digs, and 2 aces. Setter Savannah Bruns had 11 assists, 14 digs, 2 kills, and an ace.
