The Adna volleyball team won convincingly at home over Morton-White Pass on Thursday, 25-14, 25-14, 25-10, and used the match as a chance to break out a few new looks.
“We were able to run a few new offensive systems tonight,” Adna coach Wendie Dotson said. “It was nice to see the girls try to do a few different things than the standard outside sets or back sets, and run some actual plays. And when our passing was on, we definitely were effective in that area.”
Gaby Guard filled up the whole of the statbook, dishing out 14 assists while also logging six kills, seven digs, and two aces.
Kendall Humphrey led the way on offense with 13 kills and added 10 digs for the double-double. Danika Hallon had eight kills, 10 digs, an ace, and a block.
At the back, Parker Feist had 10 digs, and Natalie Humphrey had eight.
The Timberwolves, meanwhile, had a hard time keeping up with the Pirates. After keeping it close for each of the first two sets over the first 10 or so points, the T-Wolves caught themselves in a bad rotation they couldn’t get out of too often than not.
“The girls played hard,” T-Wolves coach Tammy Kelly said. “We just struggled getting kills at times and passed to many balls over the net.”
Emarey Hamptom and Abigail Sympson had perfect serving for MWP, and Chloe Kelly added five kills, with Kenzee Mays dishing out five assists.
Adna is scheduled to play at Toutle Lake on Tuesday while MWP looks to bounce back at Napavine.
