Pacific opened its volleyball season Thursday with a victory at Salem, 25-13, 25-18.

“We played very well against Salem. Our serving was a bright spot for us,” said Pacific Head Coach Janel Brown. “We had only two service errors. We need to continue to focus on our serves.”

With the win, Brown knows the Lady Indians still need to improve.

“Our defense had a little trouble picking up the ball. We must work harder on defense,” Brown said. “We did too much tipping for my liking. I would much rather see the girls be aggressive at the net than just give the other team the ball with an easy tip.”

Kate Cookson led the Lady Indians’ attack with 11 kills and five service aces.

Ellen Rogers added four kills, four aces and one block.

Ashley Hill finished with three kills, one block and one ace.

Gabriella Sauvage had 10 assists and three aces.

Madyson Bastean and Brigid Toney both had one kill.

Charla Jackson collected 12 digs. Cailley Bausch had four digs.

The Lady Indians play their home opener Tuesday against Rockwood Summit at 5:30 p.m.
