The Boonville Lady Pirates volleyball team didn’t get the results they were looking for Tuesday night in a two set loss against Fatima 14-25 and 8-25.
Nonetheless, head coach Hannah Ashley said there were a lot of positives coming from Kennedy Renfrow and Carson Dee on the court. “That is who the rest of the girls are looking forward during play,” Ashley said. “The girls are learning to adjust on their own. The girls have really been playing hard, smart and together.”
The Lady Pirates, dropping to 1-9-1 on the season, definitely had their moments against a bigger, more experienced Fatima team. In the first game, Boonville tied the score at 4-all after a kill by Kennedy and trailed only 7-6 after a service point by sophomore Nora Morris.
However the errors and experience began to take its toll on Boonville as the Lady Comets pulled away with a 18-8 advantage for the rest of the set.
In the second set, Boonville again played Fatima close early on while leading 3-2 after two back to back Lady Comet errors. Unfortunately for the Lady Pirates, they never led again in the match as Fatima took the lead for good 4-3 and then outscored Boonville 21-5 for the rest of the match.
Renfrow finished the match with nine attack attempts, four digs and two kills. Lily Terrell had eight attack attempts, four digs and three kills while Nora Morris had eight attack attempts, two kills and one assist, Abby Reisinger seven assists and three digs, Madison Smith three attack attempts, two blocks and one kill, Hope Mesik four digs and one attack attempt, Carson Dee three digs and one attack attempt and Lillian Rohrbach three attack attempts.
Fatima also won the JV match in two straight.
Genae Hodge had four attack attempts, one ace and one kill for Boonville. Alyssa Gross finished the match with two kills, one attack attempt and one dig while Katelyn Smith added three attack attempts, Kinley Fox two digs and one attack attempt, Claire Witting two digs, Abby Fuemmeler one dig and one assist,  Ava Parman with one ace and one dig and Molly Schuster with one attack attempt.
