Bravettes bounce Big Sky in volleyball

Print Article

MISSOULA — Flathead Bravettes opened Western AA volleyball play on Tuesday by dropping Missoula Big Sky 27-25, 25-7, 25-11.

The Bravettes survived a close call in the first set, but dominated play after that to move to 7-6 overall, 1-0 league.

“We took a little bit of a slow start, had to find our rhythm, got in a groove,” Flathead coach Nicole Fairclough said.

“Everyone played really well.”

Especially Taylor Henley and Sierra Wilhelm.

Henley led in kills (13) and blocks (six).

Wilhelm had team-bests in digs (14), assists (35) and aces (three).

“Taylor and Sierra had great all-around games,” Fairclough said.

Madde Boles also had three aces for Flathead.

“We passed the ball and the hitters took care of the ball at the net,” Fairclough said.

Up next for Flathead is the crosstown match on Thursday at Flathead. Play starts at 7 p.m.

Flathead 3, Missoula Big Sky 0

Kills — Flathead 41 (Taylor Henley 13, Julia Burden 12), Big Sky 18 (Chasity Foote 6); Blocks — Flathead 8 (Henley 6), Big Sky 4 (Elizabeth Clawson 3); Digs — Flathead 48 (Sierra Wilhelm 14), Big Sky 52 (Shelby Lenox 15); Assists — Flathead 37 (Wilhelm 35), Big Sky 17 (Katie Rolle 13); Aces — Flathead 8 (Wilhelm 3, Madde Boles 3), Big Sky 1 (Mia Sandau 1).
