Lady Cubs Take Fourth In Ozark Volleyball Tourney

Monday, October 19, 2009

The Monett Lady Cubs took fourth place Saturday in the prestigious Ozark Grand Slam volleyball tournament. A total of 12 teams competed in the three-pool event.

"It was a tough tournament," said Monett Coach Shyrah Boyle.

"Several of our girls played well," Boyle said. "Keli Cornell had a good all-around tournament. Our setters, Madison Carlin and Maddie Schmidt, did a better job defensively. Mackenzie Lay had good communication with her teammates."

Monett, in the black pool, lost to Republic 13-25 and 19-25 and to Winona 22-25 and 19-25 before beating West Plains 25-19 and 25-21.

The Lady Cubs then went to the Bronze Division where they lost to Carl Junction 22-15 and 16-25.

In the third place game, Monett fell to Bolivar 26-28 and 19-25.

Carl Junction won the tournament by defeating West Plains 25-22 and 26-24.

Monett is now 11-19-1 for the year.

The Lady Cubs play tomorrow at home versus Mt. Vernon in a Big 8 Conference encounter.

"We will recognize all of our seniors tomorrow night," said Boyle.
