Jenks volleyball improves to 3-0 with sweep of Bartlesville
Jenks volleyball earned its first sweep of the young season Tuesday with a three-games to none throttling of Bartlesville.
The victory improved the Lady Trojans’ record to 3-0 after Jenks traveled to Edmond North last Thursday and beat the Huskies in a five-game classic.
The Lady Trojans defeated the Bruins 25-23 in the first game Tuesday, 25-20 in the second and 25-15 in the third and final game of the night.
“The first two games we just couldn’t get our in our offense,” Jenks coach Tanna Smith said. “Our serve/receive game wasn’t working very well. We started serving more aggressively in the second and third games. I am super proud of the girls. The third game looked a lot more like us. The girls are definitely gaining more confidence as the matches go on. With each match, we are getting better.”
Smith said even though there are eight seniors on the roster, her team is still inexperienced.
“We are improving,” Smith said. “Our practices are getting better. I don’t want to be peaking yet. It is still August, and this was our third match. I am fine with the upward climb we are making right now. We will keep working on our mental game, but I am proud of them. Any time you win, it is a good thing and we are happy about that.”
Jenks finished the match with 47 kills, 11 blocks, six aces, 62 digs, 45 assists and 62 receptions.
Mikiah Perdue led the team in kills with 14. Savanna LaBiche led the team in blocks with six. Alison Montes led the team in aces with two. Megan Salyer led the team in digs with 15. Honda Figueroa led the team in assists and Sophie Bufogle led the team in receptions with 20.
Jenks’ next match is 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Owasso.
