Rebels fall to Mustangs
Southwestern volleyball dropped a road match on Tuesday, losing 3-0 to New Washington.
The Rebels played close in the first set but fell 25-21 before New Washington easily claimed sets two and three, 25-16 and 25-15.
"I thought our defense and serve reception was strong tonight when we played the ball," Southwestern coach Chris Johnson said. "We allowed them too many balls to hit the floor without making a play on them. Credit some of that to New Washington for hitting spots all night long."
Skyla Judkins was 26-for-28 hitting and 8-for-9 passing with 10 kills. Sarah Anderson was 14-for-14 serving with 23 assists, 13 digs and two aces while Karli Long and Mariah Franklin combined for 13 kills.
"Our offense started slow but picked up with a big contribution from Skyla Judkins," Johnson said. "I think we need to continue to develop as a team on the floor together. I hope the girls buy into what I tell them at practice and in the locker room because they have great potential than what we are putting on the floor right now."
Southwestern (11-12) hosts South Ripley on Thursday for an Ohio River Valley Conference match. The match will be senior night for the Rebels.
