Sheffield Runs Streak to Six with Sweep of Youngsville

202

YOUNGSVILLE, Pa. – Sheffield extended it’s winning streak to six straight with a sweep at Youngsville Monday.

The Wolverines committed just 10 unforced errors en route to a 25-13, 25-14 and 25-13 win over the Eagles.

“We have been working on minimizing our mistakes,” Sheffield coach Melissa Lemay said. “Tonight we had just six errors on 85 attack attempts and only four missed serves.”

Sheffield (7-1) again ran a balanced offense as Kadence Steffan dished out 32 assists and added 10 digs and served two aces. Lynzie Grubbs led the attack with nine kills and a pair of blocks. Emily Leichtenberger, Annabel Sheldon and Kassidy Orinko each had seven kills while Lexi Goldthwaite added five.

“Maddy Roell and Lily Lauffenberger both served and played excellent defense tonight,” Lemay said. “Strong serve receive and defense allowed us to run our offense effectively.”

Andrea Sveda led Youngsville’s attack with six kills and four blocks. Samantha Wilhelm had 16 digs and Jena Wilson had 14 assists and six digs.

“The Lady Eagles struggled due to their lack of communication on the court,” Youngsville coach Misty Weber said. “The team potential is there if we can support each other on the court and communicate throughout the rest of this season.”
Sheffield won the junior varsity match, 25-5 and 25-10.
Orinko served the Wolverines from point 7 through point 18, with six aces, in the first set. Syrena Antonuccio served the final five points of the set, with three aces. Halle McLaughlin served points 12 through 20 in the second set.
“Our JV had only five missed serves on the night,” Lemay said.
Sheffield gets right back on the court Tuesday as the Wolverines host Curwensville.
