Bronco volleyball blows past Goshen

Western Brown volleyball hit the hardwood at home earlier this week against Goshen and the Warriors hardly stood a chance.

The Broncos raced out to a 12-5 lead in the first set before a Goshen timeout to try to break the streak. It didn’t help. The Broncos used a strong serving game and solid net play to finish off the Warriors in the first set 25-14. Junior Kaitlin Huseman was injured on the final point of the set and had to be helped off the court. She did not return to the game and would be seen later with her left knee wrapped and in a brace.

Her absence didn’t slow down the Broncos. The team jumped out to another large lead in set two before winning the set 25-13. The third set started closer, and Goshen scored the first point of the set for what was their first and only lead of the entire match. The Broncos took a 3-3 tie early and finished the set on a 22-6 run, winning the third set 25-9 and sweeping the match.

Head coach Carla Fite said the team’s ability to serve and serve well is something they work on hard in practice.

”Serving tough has been a focus this year,” Fite said. “We practice serving aggressively on a regular basis in practice. I want the players to go back and serve with a purpose, and they have definitely been doing so.”

Lexi Ring had six aces for the Broncos and Mary Sizer had five. In addition to their strong performance on the service line, the Broncos front played well at the net all game long, something Fite called a strength of the team.

“Our net game is very strong,” Fite said. “We block well, we swing and we’re aggressive. Even the back row picks up the attacks from the other team as well. We’re a good defensive team who’s really playing well together this season.”

Senior outside hitter Sugaree Shaffer paced the Broncos with 15 kills while MacKenzie Brooks and Bailie Darnall had five blocks each. Sizer led the team in digs with 12 while Ring tallied 15 assists. Hannah Sininger racked up 14 assists as well for the Broncos, who hit the road to face Batavia Tuesday, September 8 at 6 p.m.

Senior MacKenzie Brooks had five blocks for the Broncos in Western Brown’s three-set sweep of Goshen Tuesday night.
