Washington split a pair of GAC Central volleyball matches during the week.

The Lady Jays (9-11, 3-2) won Tuesday at home over Holt, 26-24, 25-21, and lost Thursday at Ft. Zumwalt East, 25-15, 25-21.

Holt

Washington won a league match Tuesday at home over Holt, 26-24, 25-21.

Both games of the match ended with service aces by Washington’s Erica Diener and Rachel Jackson.

“The girls played very consistent in both games. Holt missed six serves in game two, which allowed us to stay alive because we made more errors in the second game than the first,” said Washington Head Coach Kym Blankenship. “Our hitters were able to mix up our shots and keep the defense guessing.”

The Lady Jays had 10 aces in the match.

Jackson finished the contest with seven kills and two aces.

Olivia Strode added five kills, one block and one ace.

Hannah Leslie registered four kills and three aces.

Kara Herron collected four kills and two blocks.

Emily Voss finished with 10 assists and one ace.

Elizabeth Brinkmann added nine assists, three kills and one ace.

Jenna Barnhart had two kills. Diener added one assist and led the defense, along with Kelly Gauzy.

“Our outsides were very effective in both games. Gauzy and Diener both had standout defensive games,” Blankenship said. “I was happy to see the girls play strong after a really tough weekend. We are hopefully on the upswing and have most of our hurdles behind us.”

Washington plays next week at the Hermann Tournament. The Lady Jays’ pool play schedule for Monday is Montgomery County at 5 p.m., New Haven at 7 p.m. and Pacific at 9 p.m.

Ft. Zumwalt East

Washington lost Thursday at Ft. Zumwalt East, 25-15, 25-21.

“We had a very tough start against Zumwalt East. We knew going into the game that they were a tough team because we went three games the last time we played (a Washington win),” Blankenship said. “We started out down by nine points in the first game between service aces and hitting errors.”

Blankenship took positives from the match.

“Many of our key players really had a great game, especially Jackson,” Blankenship said. “She played great defense in the second game and earned her share of kills in the front row and back row. I was really happy to see our captain play and lead her team like she did.

“We had great play moments from Lauren Borgerding and Jenna Barnhart as well as Olivia Strode. As good as the girls came around in the second game, it wasn’t enough to get the win. East got a jump on us and didn’t back down. They had strong servers and a couple of key attackers that powered through our blockers.”

Washington plays next week at the Hermann Tournament. The Lady Jays’ pool play schedule for Monday is Montgomery County at 5 p.m., New Haven at 7 p.m. and Pacific at 9 p.m.

“I look forward to the Hermann Tournament,” Blankenship said. “The girls are energized and inspired to work hard in practice to make a good showing.”
