West Stokes grabbed their eighth win of the season in three sets (25-15, 25-9, 25-21) against the Lady Vikings in a non-conference matchup.
“They’ve been executing what I’ve been asking for the most part. We hope it turns into something positive as we move into conference games,” said Wildcats coach Jordan Stevens.
Against North, the coach said his team played well especially on the service line.
“We were very aggressive and for the most part kept North Stokes out of system. That was part of our game plan to put as much pressure on them as possible. It allowed us to have more offensive opportunities and we took advantage of that and put the ball away,” Stevens said.
It was the Lady Wildcats fifth straight win after defeating Elkin, Wilkes Central, North Forsyth and Glenn.
“Rachel Delcamp and Madeline Newsome led the way on offense,” Stevens said. “Mackenzie (Parker) is doing an extremely good job distributing the ball. All three of my defenders are huge components because they keep the ball off the ground the majority of the time.”
Stevens said he’s seen a stark contrast in his offense since the beginning of the season.
“I felt like we struggled initially, but we’re better at being more aggressive and putting the ball away instead of trying to play it safe.”
West went on to defeat South Stokes on Tuesday night in the Sauras annual Dig for a Cure game.
