The Cowanesque Valley Indians volleyball team started their season off on a postive note, taking home its first win of the season, winning all three sets in a dominating sweep against the Northern Potter team. The Indians dominated all three sets by scores of 25-5, 15-16, and 25-22.
The Indians are coming off a disappointing season, where they challenged for the district title but fell short. They will look to start where they left off at the beggining of the 2019 season.
Led by seniors Destiny Pierce, Kendra Smeltz, and Kailey Wells the Indians will look to improve this year and try and compete for a title once again.
The strong performance by junior Makayla Vargeson is one of the main reasons for their success in this contest, with her putting up an impressive stat line of 11 kills, four aces and 12 digs.
The Indians Rylie Walker also had a very solid outing against Northern Potter as well, with six kills and eight digs in the contest.
Jessica Hummel contributed to the win as well and was noted as having a very successful game serving, and helping to lead the attack.
Coach Bonnie Walker also pointed at the strong play of Kailey Wells, and her abillity to consistently set the ball which allowed for the Indians to have a fairly balanced attack.
The Indians will look to continue their success as the season moves forward when they travel to face off against the Sayre Redskins on Sept. 3. in their first taste of NTL action this season.
