ENID, Okla. —
Oklahoma Bible Academy volleyball coach James Ward got exactly what he wanted for his birthday Tuesday — his sixth straight trip to the state tournament. The No. 7-ranked Lady Trojans punched their ticket to next week’s Class 5A state championships by beating Capitol Hill 25-5, 25-8, 25-6 and Guymon 25-22 25-16 and 25-12 at the regional tournament at the OBA gym.
“It doesn’t get old,’’ Ward said. “It was a great present for me. Our seniors (Brooklyn Wiens, Sydney Downing, Hannah Jackson and Marissa Smith) played as well as they have all season.’’
“Our effort was really there today,’’ Ward said. “We served great. Our defense was incredible. We covered everything. We did enough offensively to win.’’
Wiens had seven kills, six digs, two aces and was 16 of 17 serving. Downing had seven kills, two aces, nine digs and was 17 of 17 serving. Jackson had three kills, three aces, three digs and was 10 of 11 serving. Smith was five of six serving with one ace. Other stats were: Ashley Atwood, three kills, two digs and nine of 12 serving; Kendra Kroeker, six kills, one block and two dig; Savannah Price, two digs; Abby Potter, five kills, nine of 10 serving, two aces and four digs; Madison Price, 12 digs; and Molly Cannon, four digs.
