Spartans Slay Dragons in Straight Sets
September 4, 2013
South Warren faced a familiar foe on Wednesday night hosting the Moss Dragons at Spartans Arena. In the 7th grade match, South Warren started strong building an 9-3 lead and forcing a timeout, but the Dragons came roaring back behind several Spartan errors to close to within 4 points. In the end, the Spartans survived the first set 25-18. In the second set, the Spartans stumbled out of the gate but setter Alex Pardue provided a needed spark with key serving to stretch out a 6-point gap, and the Spartans cruised 25-18, 25-12 to remain unbeaten in district play. South Warren (7-1) was paced by outside hitter Jennifer Brooks with 3 kills and 7 aces while middle hitter Leah Palmquist added 2 kills and 1 ace.
In the 8th grade match, the Spartans wasted no time with the Dragons. Behind setter Mary Pitts and middle hitter Hannah Yonts, South Warren (9-0) defeated Moss easily 25-3, 25-5 to remain unbeaten on the season. Pitts filled the stat sheet recording 5 assists, 11 aces and 3 digs while Yonts had 5 kills and 5 aces. The Spartans set a season high hitting percentage of .647 and recorded 23 aces overall. Both South Warren teams travel to Spring Hill, TN this weekend to play in the Mule Town Classic Tournament. Good luck and GO SPARTANS!!!!
