Volley Saints Beat Ambassador in 4 Sets
Hope- The Volley Saints keep on rolling as they take care of a very good Ambassador squad in 4 sets. GMCS convincingly won the opening set 25-14, then would drop the 2nd set 25-21 to head into set 3 even at one set each. The Volley Saints would win a hard fought set 25-23, then grab the final set 25-21 to earn the win Friday. Silbi Jones dominated around the net with 14 kills and 3 aces, Gracy Martin had 9 aces and a pair of kills, while Mikayla Fields had 5 aces and 4 kills. Charity Zumwalt had 6 aces and 1 kill, Baylee Pogue had 1 ace and 4 kills, and Shelby Ratcliff had 2 aces. The Volley Saints are back in action against Trinity Christian Tuesday. 

In the Jr. Saints match, the Jr. team continues to impress as they won in straight sets 25-23 and 25-7. Lexi Crane and Savannah Fields each had 5 aces for the Jr. Saints. Laila Santifer had 3 aces and 1 kill, Brailyn Almand had 1 ace and 2 kills. Heaven Garcia had 4 kills and an ace, and Abby Mendoza and Blayklee Glass each had 1 kill each.
