SE Sweep Gains 1st Volleyball Win vs Adena Since 1996

The Southeastern Panthers showed why they are in contention with Unioto for an SVC volleyball crown, as they swept two-time defending champ Adena 25-15, 25-21, 25-20. The win is the first for the Panthers vs Adena since 1996, when high school volleyball played two sets out of three for the match.

Adena took 3-0 leads in each of the first two sets of the match, but Southeastern would take-off on long scoring runs each time. The Panthers broke away from an 8-8 tie in Set 1, finishing on a 17-8 run for a 25-15 win for a (1-0) advantage.

Set 2 saw the score tied as late at 16-16, then SE took the lead and never trailed again, with the Warriors getting to within 23-21 before Southeastern won 25-21.

Southeastern never trailed in Set 3, taking leads of 5 to 6 points. The Warriors cut a 22-16 deficit to 23-20, before the Panthers closed the door at 25-20.

Ella Skeens led the Panthers attack with 14 kills, followed by Skylar Hice with 10, Jess Bolte 9, while Rachel Collins and Sierra Delong each added 6. Lauren Goebel dished-out 38 assists, Morgan Wilson had 20 digs, followed by Hice with 18, and Skeens and Delong with 13 each.

Adena was led by Kelsie Bossert with 11 kills and 17 digs, Abby Stark 8 and Lanie Shea with 6 and 11 digs. Ari DaRif had 11 digs. 

The Panthers improve to (4-0/6-0) as Adena drops to (2-2/4-3).
