MILLSAP – Overall experience and outstanding net play were the key ingredients that led the Mineral Wells Lady Rams to a 25-8, 25-19, 25-11 sweep over the Millsap Lady Bulldogs here Tuesday night in the volleyball season opener for both teams.
The Lady Rams return 10 players with varsity experience while Millsap, which lost key players to graduation last year, countered with a new head coach, Kacey Venecamp.
While Millsap showed determination, enthusiasm and promise, the Lady Bulldogs could not handle the net play of the Lady Rams.
MWHS had four players with at least six kills and were led at the net by senior Kelsey Garland, who sent down a match-high 10 kills. Senior hitters Emily Clingings, Niya Benavides and Shay Douglas, who played on varsity at Millsap last year, each finished with six stoppers.
