In Monett's first volleyball action of 2009, the Lady Cubs were defeated in straight sets, 14-25 and 18-25, at the hands of the host Carthage Tigers last night.
"I was happy with the effort we put out on the court," said Monett Head Coach Shyrah Boyle about her first game at the helm of the Lady Cubs.
"I am looking for fierce attitudes this week now that we have our first game out of the way," Boyle continued. "When we put everything together we look very strong. I am looking forward to Springfield Central at home on Thursday."
Keli Cornell, Brooke Beckwith and Amanda McKinney, of the Lady Cubs, served the ball well in the game last night, Boyle mentioned.
Statistical leaders for Monett included: Hunter Glouse with two solo blocks and three assisted blocks; Tandi Glouse with four assisted blocks; and Madison Carlin and Maddie Schmidt with nine assists each.
Monett also lost the junior varsity game by scores of 9-25 and 13-25.
