PILOT MOUNTAIN — East Surry volleyball remains perfect after whipping Bishop McGuinness in three sets.
The Lady Cards won by a combined 75-32 over the Lady Villains.
“It’s a conference win and Bishop’s a pretty good team; I’m pleased,” said head coach Caleb Gilley.
“We played well for the most part,” he said. “I didn’t think we hit the ball well except for Kacie (Markle). Defensively and serving, I thought we were very good.”
After playing Monday and Tuesday, this was the third match in four days for the Cards.
Gilley said fatigue didn’t seem to be a problem. He subbed regularly against East Forsyth on Monday and then was able to rotate players Thursday when East Surry built a lead.
This was the conference opener for the Cards who improved to 6-0 overall.
The Cards won the first set 25-9, then took the second 25-14 and the third 25-9.
Markle led the front line with 14 kills on just 21 swings with zero hitting errors, noted Gilley, an efficient night.
Markle also provided 10 digs and two aces.
Cheyenne Kota had five kills, Jessie Marion and Sydney Marion had three each and Kristel Hicinbothem two.
Olivia Sheets set them up with 22 assists to go with eight digs and four aces.
Jessi Marion led the team with three stuffs, Kota and Sydney Marion had two blocks each, and Hicinbothem added one.
Libero Sydney Mosley had 11 digs, and Hicinbothem had five.
East Surry travels to North Stokes on Tuesday.
Gilley still North Stokes is a very good team again this year, and he is expecting a good match.
