Warriors find a silver rush

Virginia City once housed a very properous silver mine, but the Muckers found no silver when they visited Whittell on Tuesday. The Warriors swept the visitors 15-6, 15-5, 15-5.

“We totally and completely dominated every aspect of the match,” Warrior coach Dan McLaughlin said.

Whittell seemed to be able to score at will against the 1A school, and used the match as a warmup for the opening of league play against Lovelock on Saturday.

While the match was a total team effort, the Warriors saw some impressive numbers put up by many of their players. Shannon McGlothlin had five kills, 13 service points and eight aces. Stephanie Evans had 19 points with eight aces.

“She was serving them off the court, she was so good,” McLaughlin said.

Ashley Berns had four kills, three points, one ace and four blocks. Kim McGlothlin added two kills and a block. Joeleene Brinkley had four points and a pair of aces. Liz Rico, playing in her second varsity game, recorded her first kill and Ashlye Johnson recorded three points, one ace and 16 assists.

“I’m really happy with what I have going into league,” McLaughlin said. “But we can’t take Lovelock lightly because everyone is gunning for us.”
