Daughter vs. Dad: St. Clair Opens Volleyball With Setback to Potosi
September 7, 2012St Clair Athletics
St. Clair’s season-opening volleyball match last Thursday at home against Potosi was a family affair for new Lady Bulldogs head coach Ashley Mims.
In her first career contest as a head coach, Ashley Mims went against her father, Potosi Head Coach Gary Mims.
This time around, it was dad defeating daughter as Potosi (2-0) knocked off the Lady Bulldogs, 25-16, 25-12.
“Dad may have won, but I scored the first point of the night. It was honestly an amazing feeling playing against my father,” Ashley Mims said. “I just hope that I can become a successful and respected coach like him one day. He is my model for not only a coach, but as a P.E. teacher as well.”
Mims was pleased with the effort the Lady Bulldogs (0-1) gave in the season opener.
“All in all, my girls came out and gave everything they had,” Mims said. “They stayed positive and gave 100 percent.”
Leading St. Clair in kills during the match were Allison Hinson and Sam Deason, both finishing with four. Deason added three blocks.
Emily Rogers led the Lady Bulldogs in assists with eight.
Kayla Klenke served five points. Sharon Wagner led the Lady Bulldogs defensively with three digs.
Mims likes the potential of her St. Clair team.
“I really like our team. We have a lot of coachable kids, which I really like, Mims said. “The girls are working hard and always do what I ask. Some of them have had three different coaches now, but have been very patient and willing to learn what we’re teaching them.”
St. Clair played Tuesday at Waynesville and plays Saturday at the North County Tournament.
