(Park Hills) The Central Rebels volleyball team hosts the St. Pius Lancers tonight in Park Hills on the MyMoInfo SportStream. Central comes into the match with a 7-4-3 record while St. Pius boasts a 12-4-3 record. Lancers head coach Shannon Leftridge says they recently had a transfer become eligible at the setter position and that has made their offense much faster over the last couple of matches.
Sara Wells is that senior transfer setter and she’s averaging 9.7 assists per set through 21 sets played so far. Her main target is junior Kennedy Lane who’s averaging 5.1 kills per set on a .319 hitting percentage this season. Those two will have to be crisp against Central as the Rebels have beaten the Lancers the last two times they’ve met in straight sets. Coach Leftridge says it’s always tough playing Central.
Central has gone 3-2 in their last five with losses to Jackson and Ste. Genevieve in straight sets. The Rebels will host the Lancers at 6:30 this evening with the Flieg’s Equipment Pregame Show starting at 6:15 on the MyMoInfo SportStream.
