Cowgirls pass first regional test, defeat B-K

Disney 14 of 14 serving with 3 aces

  The Clarion-Goldfield-Dows volleyball team continues down the tournament trail following a three-set sweep of neighboring Belmond-Klemme last Tuesday at home. Scores were 25-20, 25-17, 25-20.

  A point by Celeste Swanson put the red and black up 19-18 in the opening set. The Cowgirls then dropped a ball inside the back line on the Bronco side for a 20-18 advantage. Jossie Sann had an ace up her sleeve, and served it up only to have B-K stop the run to make it 21-19. Hannah TerHark found an open spot on the other side to make the 22nd point, but an official’s net call gave the Broncos new life. Celeste slammed a ball from the left for a 23-20 lead, and then served up the set point which the Broncos couldn’t return to take the win.

  Set two saw a Bronco serve into the net make it 20-13 in favor of the Cowgirls. B-K couldn’t find the handle on the ball to return the next serve, giving the Cowgirls another point. A ball hit long by C-G-D made it 22-14, followed by a ball into the net for another Bronco point. Celeste delivered a kill from her left side position to take it to 23-15, with an official’s net call giving the Cowgirls set point. Following two B-K points, a block-back effort at the net gave the red and black the win.
