GHS volleyball is perfect in league

The Bluebirds were guests at Peabody last week, and the match against White City went to three sets.

In set one, Goessel jumped out to a 8-1 lead, but the Huskies tied the game 9-9, and from then on, it was a close battle, with Goessel getting small leads only to see White City tie again. The Huskies got their first lead of the game 27-26 and nipped the Bluebirds on the next point.

In the second set, again Goessel jumped out to an 8-1 lead, but White City would only score nine more points the rest of the game as Goessel won 25-10. It was much the same story in the third set as Goessel took command from the beginning and snared the match with a 25-9 win.

Against Peabody-Burns, the Warriors took a 3-point lead 9-6, but Goessel stayed close and then late in the game outscored Peabody 6-1 to take a 24-18 lead. The Warriors closed the gap, before the Bluebirds won 25-21.

In the second set, Peabody-Burns had the lead for most of the game. Goessel cut a 6-point deficit to take a short lived 11-10 lead and then the Warriors answered with several points and would not let Goessel catch up, winning 25-21.

In the third, set Goessel grabbed an early lead and took advantage of several Peabody errors to win 25-14.

Seniors Paige Booton and Aimee Flaming collected some impressive statistics. Booton ended the evening with 22 kills and 37 digs, with Flaming contributing 33 assists. Johanna Hoffman collected 34 digs and Tia Goertzen served five aces with Makaila Schmidt dishing out four aces for the night.

The Bluebirds have made it halfway through the league season and still have a perfect 4-0 mark with an overall record of 8-4. Several tough matches remain, including contests against Little River and Solomon that took place Tuesday.
