It only took two games for Lee’s Summit to finish off Raymore-Peculiar in the Suburban Big Six volleyball match Sept. 21.
The Tigers won 25-15 and 27-25.
The Lee’s Summit duo of Hailey Criswell and Emma Lock again and again blocked would-be opposition points at the net. It was all Tiger in the first game, with Lee’s Summit winning with a comfortable 10-point lead.
“I was proud of my kids,” Lee’s Summit head coach Roy Martin said. “I was proud of how they stayed calm especially in game two as the score got tight. Our passers did a great job of staying calm and making sure we took care of the first ball and our hitters stayed aggressive. I was pretty proud of them.”
Raymore-Peculiar showed a glimmer of hope in game two staying within one point of the Tigers, with the score knotted at 25-25. But Lee’s Summit fought to win the game 27-25.
“We’ve been driving on the struggle bus for a while so hopefully we can overcome it,” Raymore-Peculiar head coach Katie Dowden said. “We almost found some momentum to shift things at the end. Unfortunately; it just couldn’t carry us through.”
Raymore-Peculiar now stands at 11-17 overall and Lee’s Summit is 5-23-4 overall.
