The Manson Lady Trojan Varsity Team Celebrates Their Win Over Entiat!


10/06/08 at Entiat


   Varsity Head Coach Bridgewater ~ Reports  


The Manson Lady Trojans had a great win over the Entiat Tigers on Monday, Oct. 6th, 2008 at Entiat. The game scores were 25/16, 23/25, 22/25, 25/18 and 15/12. It was a hard fought battle from the start. We came out strong in the first game taking control from the start. We were ahead in the 2nd game 23/18 when we went into a slump behind some great serving from Jamie of Entiat. The Tigers mounted a comeback and took that game away from us. The third game was much the same in a battle back and forth with the Tigers once again coming out on top. We felt that we were right there and that our conditioning program was going to pay off for us. We seemed to gain momentum as the next two games played out and the Tigers seemed to lose their legs a bit.  


Stats for the match were as follows;

* Whitni England had 23 assists was 27/31 at the serving line with 4 aces.

 * Verna LaCourse had a huge night for the Trojans with 11 kills, 6 blocks and 7 ace serves.

* Kelsey Harding was a voice leader on the floor as well as contributing 8 kills and 9 ace serves.

* Abby Bridgewater had 7 kills and 6 blocks for the Trojans

* Hailey Ellsworth was a huge contributor in her serving and all around play.


I am so proud of how hard these girls have worked. Every practice they are focused and ready to learn some more. It is always fun to win but it even more fun to work with a group of athletes that are unselfish and willing to do anything to make their team better.


JV beat Entiat in three hard fought games also. The games scores were 19/25, 25/18 and 25/22.


The Lady Trojans travel to Liberty Bell on Thursday, October 9th, 2008. The Junior Varsity game starts at 5 p.m. followed by Varsity. The Manson Lady Trojan Soccer Team also play Liberty Bell with the game staring at 5:30 p.m.
