Colts buck ‘Cats

RICHMOND – The Edison volleyball team dropped a 22-25, 25-22, 25-19, 25-22 decision to visiting Meadowbrook Saturday.

“The girls were in and out today,” said Wildcats head coach Leah Eft. “We use the phrase ‘flashes of brilliance’ a lot with this team because they sporadically show us what they are capable of with monstrous kills, accurate blocks, scrappy defense, and communication, but it is only ‘here and there.’

“When these girls become a team and do these things consistently, with fire and intensity, they will be a serious force to be reckoned with. Meadowbrook is a great team. They took advantage of our lapses in judgement each time we had them. Their coach manipulates her team well, and they are very consistent.

“Kudos to that program. They are very disciplined.”

Kimmy Wilson delivered eight points and two aces, Maddie Williamson 10 points and three digs, Cassady Jarvis 14 kills, eight points and four blocks, Caitlin Brenstuhl 33 assists, five points, four aces, five kills and three digs, Katelyn Pollock 11 kills, two points, two assists and three digs, Kalee Neal eight points and two digs and Alexis Gill five kills.
