ROTHSAY —The Underwood volleyball team picked up a three-set victory over Little Eight Conference foe Rothsay 25-17, 25-8, 25-13 Tuesday.
“It was a good conference win for us, considering it was our first match of the year, and we have a few new faces on the court,” Rockets head coach Diane Ross said.
Emma Fitzgibbons led the Rockets from the service line going 24-for-24 with six aces and recording 12 kills. Teammate Kayla Rocholl added five aces and 12 digs in the win.
“They were a really solid team,” Tigers head coach Kim Braaten said. “We played well in the first set but had a dip in the second. We just lacked confidence, but we did a lot of good things. Emily Christ, Jenna Faber and Jayna Gronewold really did great things for the team tonight.”
The Rockets will travel to take on Hillcrest at 7:15 p.m. Thursday, while the Tigers will travel to take on Lake Park-Audubon at 7:15 p.m. Thursday.
