DuBOIS, Pa. – Sheffield came back from losing the first set to win three straight in a crucial victory at DuBois Central Catholic on Monday.

The Wolverines need to go 3-3 this week and took the first step towards that goal with a 3-1 (19-25, 25-17, 27-25 and 25-23) win over the Cardinals.

“Service errors nearly killed us tonight,” Sheffield coach Melissa Lemay said. “We gave up 20 points in missed serves. We struggled with passing tonight and when that happens it’s very hard to run an in-system offense. Part of our troubles come from a lack of communication and not being in a position to make the best pass.”

One bright spot on the service line was Hannah Grinnell who was perfect and added 13 digs.

Lynzie Grubbs had 11 kills, while Emily Foster had nine kills and three blocks. Kadence Steffan ran the offense with 34 assists and had 14 digs.

“We have only had a handful of practices since returning from our quarantine, and I can’t help but think lack of practice time has certainly hurt us,” Lemay said. “That being said, they held it together and battled back from losing the first set to win the match. Was it pretty? Nope, but they got it done. We need to have a perfect week this week. I know that they can do it. I hope that they do too.”

DCC won the junior varsity match 25-19, 21-25 and 16-14.
