The Brandon-Evansville volleyball team bounced back from its first dual loss of the season on Sept. 10 by sweeping Ashby two days later.
The Chargers coasted in almost every match, winning 25-7, 25-18 and 25-12.
“On our side of the net, we wanted to do two things in order to be successful -- serve well and side out consistently,” B-E head coach Kelly Olson said. “We served 95% and were over 60% in siding out. I put some pressure on the girls by throwing them in different lineups, and they responded.”
Olson said the Chargers bogged down a little bit in the second set, but responded well and finished the match.
“Coming out fast was important and we did that each set,” he said. “Overall, the match was efficient and clean, even when Ashby scrambled and threw us some unexpected balls. I liked our play on offense and defense, and everyone did what they were supposed to.”
Mikenna Pattrin had a good match at the net with nine kills and two blocks. Korrie Randt had a team-high 21 assists and Kailee Klimek finished with eight digs. Brittany Korkowski also hurt the Arrows from the serving line with seven aces.
The Chargers improved to 4-1 in matches outside of weekend tournaments and are now 3-0 in the Little Eight Conference. Ashby fell to 0-9 overall and 0-2 in the LEC.

CGB too much for Knights
West Central Area fell victim to one of the top teams in Section 6A on Thursday night as Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley (4-0) swept the Knights (2-7) by scores of 25-8, 25-14 and 25-14.
“CGB dominated tonight,” WCA head coach Melissa Foslien said. “We were not the same team we were on Tuesday. We had a tough time getting touches on their hits to slow them down. We adjusted in game two and three by moving Ellie Herman to the outside, and rotating Halle Foslien in the middle position to hopefully slow down their attack line. Kaleigh Anderson deserves props for her excellent serve receive and her defense. We just had too many errors on our side and could never really gain on the Wolverines.”
Liz Rustan led the Knights at the net with four kills, while Hailey Bennett added three.
