BELLEVUE — The Schuyler Central High School volleyball team recovered nicely from its season-opening defeat by thrashing the Cornerstone Christian Cougars in a match played Aug. 31 in Bellevue.
After struggling to find a rhythm against Wisner-Pilger, the Warriors came out firing on all cylinders in their second match of the season.
Schuyler exploded to a 25-7 win in the opening set then followed that up with set wins of 25-13 and 25-19 to even its season record at 1-1 and give Jenna Saalfeld her first victory as the Lady Warriors’ head coach.
Schuyler had 18 kills in the match with a balanced attack.
Junior Rachel Shonka and senior Lauren Kasik led the way with four kills each while Haylee Korth and Maria Semerad recorded three apiece.
The Lady Warriors also had nine blocks, with Shonka tallying three of them. Korth and Kinzie Petersen had two blocks each.
Semerad led Schuyler with 11 digs and Kameryn Healy had a team-best 12 assists.
Schuyler hosts a triangular Thursday against Twin River and West Point-Beemer. The Lady Warriors head to Midland University in Fremont on Saturday for the Cedar Bluffs Invite.
