Special to the Leader & Times

Lady Warriors improved their record to 17-0 Monday, beating Great Bend and Hays.

The score for the Great Bend match was 25-10, 25-6.

Lizzie Cisneros served eight times with four aces and came up big in both games playing some tough defense.  

Lexi Hensley recorded three kills with five aces. alt

“Lexis is beginning to hit harder angles than she ever did before, finding spots that defenders are having a hard time digging,” Eisenhower coach Jodi Malick said.  “Jenna Ormiston is probably the best first server that I have ever had.  she is so calm and collected when serving that she makes her service look so easy.  Being the first server has a lot of pressure all its own, but she always rises to the occasion.”

Malick also had praise for her two setters.

“Rachelle Terrazas and Katie Classen are continuing to set up their hitters by getting to the ball every time,” she said. “I always say that a setter is the heart of the team without all the glory. They make others look good, and these two do just that.”

Malick has also seen improvement in the middle.

“Alondra Garcia, Naomi Macias, and Harley Ewalt are putting in work in the middle position and coming up with key plays when we need them by playing tough defense and putting down the ball when needed,” Malick said.

Eisenhower jumped out to an early lead 8-1 over Hays, and the Lady Warriors finished that match 25-10.

In the second set, the Lady Warriors had a lead of 10 and Hays turned up the hard serves and Eisenhower struggled to break the serve.  

Malick called a rare time out, and even though Hays fought back to cut the Warrior lead to 23-21, Eisenhower finished with the final score 25-23.      

“I say to my team over and over that hustle and effort out-win talent any day, and they are showing me the true meaning of grit,” Malick said. “While other teams are getting better, so is mine, and every day they continue to work harder than they did before.  Another key to our win is they trust each other and seem to genuinely like each other.  When they have fun and play relaxed is some of the best volleyball I have seen at this level.  My ladies do not want to fail each other because of the high standards they set for each other.  One team.  One family.”

The Lady Warriors travel to Seymour Rogers Monday and will go to Southwestern Heights Tuesday, finishing up their season at the MSWAC tournament Oct. 7 at Great Bend.
