SHEFFIELD, Pa. – Sheffield volleyball bounced back from a rough road trip with a 3-1 win over visiting North Clarion Thursday.
The Wolverines (2-1) dropped the first set, and had comeback victories in the final three to pick up a 21-25, 25-15, 25-16 and 25-22 win.
“We started a little timid the first game, unsure of ourselves,” Sheffield coach Melissa Lemay said. “They were able to regroup and play better all around the next three sets.”
Annabel Sheldon led a trio of Wolverines in double figures with 12 kills. Emily Leichtenberger had 11 kills and Kassidy Orinko 10. Sheldon added six digs and Orinko had a pair of blocks. Kadence Steffan had 31 assists.
“We had 42 kills and Kadence did a good job moving the ball around,” Lemay said.
After serving exceptionally well in Monday’s loss, Sheffield struggled from the service line in Thursday’s win.
“We had more service errors than we would like, so we need to clean that up,” Lemay said. “I was pleased with our serve receive and I felt that we got to more balls tonight than they did on Monday. We are working on seeing the court and reading the play so we can react faster on defense.”
Sheffield won the junior varsity contest, 25-10 and 25-16.
Emily Foster had six kills and Steffan added 14 assists in the win.
Sheffield gets right back on the court Friday when the Wolverines head north to take on cross-county rival Eisenhower.
