Brusly’s Lady Panthers dominated both West Feliciana and Parkview last week in volleyball, giving the team an 18-6 record and a 2-0 district record.
Monday, September 30th, the Panthers took on the West Feliciana Saints. Although all three matches were close, Brusly was able to conquer all of them: 25-20, 25-19, and 25-23.
“West Feliciana played better than I expected,” said Coach Karen Wooley. “They had a good squad, but we were just a little more dominant. After coming off that tournament with those really tough teams, it was good to play them.”
Caitlyn Williams had a staggering 16 kills during the game. Johnee LeBlanc had the second most with 8. Abigail Eilers, Keeley Martin, and Shelby Willis served the majority of the points for Brusly with 12, 9, and 7 serves, respectively.
Wednesday, October 2nd, Brusly played the Parkview Baptist Eagles.
“It was a very exciting game,” said Coach Karen Wooley. “Parkview had not lost a district match since 2010.”
Despite the Eagles’ undefeated record, Brusly won 3 of 4 matches. The first match ended in Brusly’s favor, 25-23. The second match was won by Parkview 21-25, but Brusly won the final two, 25-21 and 25-20.
Notable players included Eilers, Martin, Williams, LeBlanc, Willis, Claire Daigle, and Kylie Tolar.
Eilers served 18 of the Panthers’ points while Martin served up 11. Williams and LeBlanc each had 3 blocks during the game. LeBlanc delivered 15 kills, Williams contributed 9, and Willis had 8. Tolar had a total of 38 assists.
The girls’ coach had nothing but good things to say about the team’s performance.
“Johnee LeBlanc has been playing really well and Claire Daigle has been doing an awesome job passing,” said Coach Wooley. “Freshman Caitlyn Williams is getting better and better with experience each day.”
