Clark senior Carrie Irvin had 29 sets, 24 set assists and one ace.
“I was very pleased with Carrie Irvin,” Curry said. “She had a super game for us tonight, making big, athletic plays.”
Curry also liked the way Darion Marzetti performed.
“She played very well,” Curry said.
Kyndal Curry had eight aces, while Maddie Hamlin followed with two. Hamlin added a block, followed by Sandra Skinner with six kills. Curry and Marzetti had five kills each, followed by Hamlin with four and Cori Miller and Joanna Guerrant with one each.
Amy Kao had 11 serve receive passes and added 17 digs. Kyndal Curry had five serve receive passes. Katlynn Williams and Irvin combined for eight serve receive passes in the contest.
Clark will get a break today before taking on Pendleton County Thursday night in Falmouth.
“We need to really buckle down and practice hard,” Curry said. “They are a very tough team in our region that we need to be ready for.”
The freshmen and junior varsity teams swept each of their two games. In the second set of the junior varsity game, Clark produced 18 aces.
“I was very impressed with how my JV¿played tonight,” Curry said. “The future of GRC¿volleyball is bright. We have a lot of height, strength and athletic JV¿team that I am looking forward to coaching. (The 18 aces) shows just how far we have come as a team when we go to just learning how to serve to dominating in that area.”
Cards fall to Flyers
The George Rogers Clark boys soccer team returned to the field Tuesday night and suffered a 4-0 loss to Franklin County at the Cardinal Soccer Complex.
Frankie Kao had the Cardinals’ only shot on goal, while goal keeper Conner Blankenship collected six saves for Clark.
“It was another disappointing effort,” Clark coach Ian Collins said after his team fell to 1-4-1 on the season. “We have to fight back and show some fighting quality.”
In the junior varsity game, Clark lost, 4-2.
Jose Villa had a goal and an assist, while Alex Hon also scored. Mason Hatton added an assist and goal keeper Dustin Summers had three saves.
“The boys played a great 25 minutes in the first half,” Clark JV coach Chase Davis said. “They made a few silly mistakes that ended up costing them the game.”
