VICTORIA — The Ellinwood Middle School volleyball team opened the season by sweeping Victoria Thursday in three matches.
“The night was a great start to the season for the Eagles,” said Ellinwood coach Greg Maxwell.
Maxwell said the Eagles prepared for well coached, talented and fundamentally sound Victoria Lady Squires volleyball team.
“The Eagles used emotion, energy and some early serving ace points to build confidence and generate a relentless offense to jump out to a big lead and continued to build throughout the match,” Maxwell said.
The Eagles won 25-4, 25-11 with a game-ending 12-0 scoring burst.
“The Eagles served extremely well and were able to convert offensive attacks with good passing and zero hitting errors,” Maxwell said.
Victoria won the B-team first set 26-24 as the Eagles struggled with poor passing and missed serves. However, after some rotation adjustments, the girls regained their confidence and swept the final two sets 25-19, 15-13.
The C team played in a running clock format for 15 minutes eventually outlasting the Squires in total points.
