Brady powers through with homecoming win
The Eagles swept Sumner-Eddyville-Miller on Friday, advancing to 8-2 and winning their homecoming match, 25-15, 25-19 and 25-12.
It being homecoming week made it more difficult if anything, head coach Lynne Johnson said.
“We didn’t play that great of a game against them,” Johnson said. “It capped a long week.”
By long week, Johnson meant the triangular Sept. 17, junior varsity games on Sept. 19 and the home match against SEM. That was all done during homecoming week which made for late nights and not as sharp mental focus as she would’ve liked.
She said she was happy that the girls pulled through when they were mentally and physically tired.
Against SEM seniors Alexis Franzen and Valerie Most combined for 13 kills with Tara Callahan adding six kills.
“With them being out and about all week, they still did fine in the circumstances we were in,” Johnson said.
The Eagles host a volleyball tournament Saturday with two conference opponents in it.
This week, Johnson said the girls will work on maintaining composure no matter what happens.
“We want them to play without getting to high or too low,” Johnson said. “We will fine tune that and focus on the little things to minimize our weaknesses.”
