The Lady Eagles volleyball team took a 3-1 conference win over Knob Noster on Tuesday, September 21.

The Lady Panthers lone set win came in the third set with a 25-17 advantage with Holden taking sets one, two, and four by 25-22, 25-17, and 25-21 advantages, respectively.

“Great match last night against a good team,” said Holden volleyball head coach Julie Carver. “We missed way too many serves, and that made it a tougher match than it could have been.

“We have to own that, and get that cleaned up.

“I thought overall we played pretty good, and did some really good things in the match.”

Senior Emma Lohe and freshman Jaci Gower topped several categories on the stat sheet with Lohe at a team-high 19 kills, 25 digs, and a 2.33 team-leading serve receive rating.

Gower led the team in aces with 5, and followed Lohe with 11 kills, and 17 digs.

“Emma and Jaci led us with double digit kills, and that is great,” said coach Carver. “Great conference win as I see that team being among the best in the conference.”

Kalie Slack also contributed multiple aces with 3 for Holden, and had 21 digs.

Tristyn Powell led the Lady Eagles with 20 assists. Brady Hinton had 18 assists.

Laila Seiz turned in a 2.00 serve receive rating.

The Lady Eagles volleyball team ended last week with an overall record of 5-3, and an MRVC-East mark of 3-0.

The Lady Eagles host Richmond this Thursday, September 30 for a C match at 5 p.m., a JV match at 6, and a varsity match at 7.

On Saturday, October 2, Holden plays in the Archie Tournament starting at 9 a.m.
