Jaicee Harris led the Lady Goats to a four-game victory over Moses Lake on Tuesday evening, September 7, 20-25, 25-14, 25-21, 25-16.
Harris combined for 21 kills, 27 digs and 20 for 21 with 8 aces at the service line to help lift the Lady Goats to the victory.
“It was a good match for our girls to play, especially having to contend with their 6’4” middle blocker,” reports Coach Hendricks. “We struggled with our ball control in the first set and found ourselves out of sync and just trying to defend our side.”
That wasn’t the case in sets 2, 3 and 4 when Chelan established better ball handling and blocking. “We were able to able to have much better flow both offensively and defensively, and our serving was huge for us.” The team was 96% from the service line.
“I was extremely proud of the way our team pushed through a very frustrating start and refocused to play a solid match,” said Hendricks.
Both the ‘C’ squad and J.V. squad posted wins against Moses Lake as well.
