UNDERWOOD — The Underwood Rockets continue to fight its way back to .500 as it defeated Little Eight Conference foe Rothsay Tigers 25-17, 25-18, 25-19 Thursday.
Karlea Thorson and Jacey Ross each delivered three aces in a 15-for-15 and 13-for-13 night. Teammate Suzie Thieschafer was also perfect from the service line going 17-for-17.
“It was senior night for us and I thought our seniors Kaitlyn Holen, Abby Obright and Suzie Thieschafer all did a good job of playing well,” Rockets coach Diane Ross said.
Caitlin Simmer continued her great stretch of play as she recorded 15 kills, eight digs and two blocks for Rothsay in the game.
“We put up a good fight tonight,” Tiger coach Heather Reber said. “Underwood was tough to defend and by the time we started getting touches on the ball it was just a little too late.”
The Rockets will close out its dual meet regular season as it travels to play Hillcrest at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, while the Tigers will have weekend duty as it takes part in the Barnesville tournament at 9 a.m. Saturday.
