The Shelby Coyotes volleyball team defeated the Conrad Cowgirls in four sets, 23-25, 25-23, 25-17, and 25-16, to earn a conference victory. The Cowgirls stole a close game from the Coyotes, and that was all the incentive they needed to get the job done on Senior night, which was Saturday, Sept. 12.
Maddison Underdal had 23 kills and two blocks to lead the Coyotes. Vivi McDermott collected 20 assists and added one block in the victory. Jori Clary helped out with six kills. Adria Lamb, Jaci Johannes and Cami Blevins each had four aces. Blevins tallied 11 digs on the night.
“We started out a little slow. I think the girls were full of emotions with it being Senior Night,” said head coach Lexy Fisher. “Set three was when they really came alive. I was really proud of them for fighting back after losing set one and coming from behind to win in set two.”
Fisher added, “Maddison had some great plays at the net and Adria and Cameron played great defense. Each week we are seeing little improvements from all of the girls which is exciting to see.”
In this week’s action, Shelby will travel to Choteau on Thursday, Sept. 17, and then will host Cut Bank on Friday, Sept. 18. Saturday, Sept. 19, they will be on the road to Fairfield. The games Thursday and Friday will start at 7:15 p.m., and Saturday will start at 4 p.m.
