Arrows sweep CometsPublished 9:54am Friday, October 11, 2013
ASHBY — The Hillcrest Comets played three tough sets with Little Eight Conference opponent Ashby, but the host team was able to celebrate the victory 25-23, 25-20, 25-21.
“Tonight was Parent/Senior Night for the Arrows, it was great to honor the parents of each of our players, who put a lot of time and energy into their girls, and therefore our team,” Arrow coach Andrea Knick said. “We also were able to honor our seniors Amber Sundal, Paige Nelson, Alexis Ness, Bailey Funkhouser and Jeannette Evavold, and thank them for all of their commitment to our team and program.
Sundal led the Arrows from the service line with a 12-for-12 outing that saw three aces and seven points scored.
“A goal we have had for awhile now is to play more consistent in a game instead if having a really good set and then a not so good one,” Comet coach Dessica Veum said. “We accomplished that tonight, in fact I have never seen the girls as consistent as they were tonight.”
Holly Savelsen led the Comets with four blocks, while Laura Tungseth contributed three in the game.
The Arrows will close out its regular season at home Tuesday as it hosts the Rothsay Tigers at 7:30 p.m., while the Comets will also finish at home Tuesday with a 7:30 p.m. against Underwood.
