Wildcats cruise on home turfOctober 15, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
Ask the Jasper volleyball team, and the Wildcats will tell you there’s no place like home.
The Wildcats silenced Big Eight Conference foe Mount Carmel 25-7, 25-15, 25-9 on Monday in their last home match of the season, improving their record at the Jasper High School Gym to 9-1 on the season; the lone loss came against Castle in the championship of the Jasper Invitational on Sept. 28.
Tori Sermersheim anchored the offense with 20 kills while Mariah Moeller scooped up a team-high six digs and pasted five aces. Teyah Leinenbach collared team-highs in assists (30) and aces (six) for the Wildcats (17-15, 4-2). Emma Stout elevated for the Cats’ lone block.
Jasper will try exacting revenge for that home loss in its regular-season finale against Castle on Thursday.
