Southwest spikers split games this week
The Southwest volleyball team lost to Exeter in three sets but defeated Sarcoxie in its final regular season games last week. The Lady Trojans finished with a 14-12-2 record overall and a 5-1 mark in the Ozark 7 Conference.
In the Exeter match, Southwest grabbed an early lead by winning the first set 25-18, but the Tigers rallied to win the next two sets on Senior Night 25-16, 25-21. Chelsie Leroy (8), Shannon Mitchell (7) and Megan Light (6) combined for 21 attacks. Setters Montana Hendrix and Atisha Boudreau both contributed 13 assists.
"It was a great match to watch," said Southwest coach Steve Voyak. "I didn't like the outcome, but both teams played well. They just made a few more plays at the end. They had nine seniors. They probably deserved to win Senior Night."
