Thursday’s 2B Volleyball: Adna Takes Down Pe Ell
ADNA — The Pirates didn’t need long to earn a win, defeating Pe Ell 3-0 in a Central 2B League volleyball match here on Thursday.
Adna won 25-12, 25-11 and 26-24.
Morgan Trotter had eight kills for the Pirates.
“We had to make a lineup change in the middle of the second game. They really served effectively,” Adna coach Wendie Dotson said of the Trojans. “We missed a bunch of serves, nine total — we’re usually fairly low. They served well and caught us off guard.”
Dotson also noted the play of Tori Lange in the front row, the setting and offensive orchestrating from Ruby Bower and Kelsi Latimer, and the back-row passing of Darian Humphrey and Anna Jones.
Pe Ell was led by Maggie Elliott with seven kills.
“It was a really slow start, but by game three, we put some things together. I was happy with how we ended,” Pe Ell coach Karie Cleveland said.
Adna (3-6, 2-3 league) hits the road to face Morton-White Pass on Tuesday in a C2BL match in Morton. Pe Ell (0-7, 0-5 league) hosts Kalama on Thursday.
