Warriors win over Virginia City in volleyball action

The Whittell High volleyball team kept rolling along with a four-game win over the Virginia City Muckers, 15-11, 15-5, 8-15, 15-1, on Tuesday night in Virginia City.

“They’re a good 1A school capable of beating many 3A schools,” Warrior coach Dan McLaughlin said. “We had to turn it up a notch to beat them.”

The Warriors were led by the exceptional play of senior Shannon McGlothlin, who led the team with 13 kills, 13 points and three aces.

“Her passing was one of the keys tonight,” McLaughlin said.

Jessika Purdy added eight kills, 14 points (including eight straight points in the fourth game) and four aces. Ashley Berns had four kills, five points and five blocks.

“Her blocking was quite the difference,” McLaughlin said. “They had a strong middle attack and Ashley just wore them down.”

Kim McGlothlin recorded three kills and three blocks, while Shelley Zaskoda had two kills, and Stephanie Evans had one kill, three points and one block.

Erin Silver had one block and added a lot of hustle and Joeleene Brinkley provided seven points and one ace.

The “Magician,” Carlye Johnson, continued to perform her setting magic with 34 assists, 11 points and three aces.

The Warriors travel to Tonopah on Saturday and North Tahoe on Tuesday.
