The Mustangs win in five sets against the Pioneers for the second time this season
#17 Division 3 state ranked Westfall opens the second round of SVC Volleyball the same way they opened the season, with a five set thriller over #15 Division 2 state ranked Zane Trace, to remain unbeaten at (8-0/10-0) while the Pioneers fall to (6-2/9-2).
The Mustangs won by scores of 25-23, 20-25, 25-20, 11-25, 15-10.
The fifth and deciding set saw Zane Trace with leads of 7-4, 9-6 and 10-8, but Westfall scored the last 7 points of the match to win. Hannah Phillips served 6 of those seven points.
6'2 junior Amanda Curry led Westfall with 24 kills while Hannah Phillips added 11 kills, 2 solo blocks, 5 aces, 21 assists and 8 digs. But, it was 5'11 junior Hannah Wallace who might have been the difference maker, as she recorded 16 kills, and 5 solo blocks. Kayla Tackett had 29 digs, followed by Kelly Fuchs and Denise Arledge with 13 and 10 respectively. Cassidy Williams had 23 assists.
Zane Trace was led by Kylan Strausbaugh with 23 kills, 26 digs and one ace. Hayley Carle had 21 kills, 24 digs and 3 solo blocks. 6'0 senior Mahlea Calhoun had 8 kills and 3 solo blocks. Ashton Ward and Alyx Chaffin each had 13 digs while Ally Flechtner and Jillian Pontious each had 12.
