Rice's aces helps NHS streak past Harrisonville

Friday, August 31, 2007

HARRISONVILLE -- Nevada High School's Lindsay Rice started the wave Thursday night in volleyball action with host Harrisonville.

No, not the type of wave where fans jump to their feet in a domino-effect and raise their arms in the air throughout a stadium or gymnasium.

Rice, who finished with six ace serves, started a string of 12 unanswered Nevada points as the Lady Tigers finished off Harrisonville in a two-game sweep with a 25-13 win. NHS won 25-17 in the first game.

"That was an awesome way to finish a match," deadpanned NHS head coach Trudy Fleeman. "We kept an even keel throughout the match. After four or five points, we kept the lead the whole time (in the first game).

The second game was close until Rice's ace shifted the momentum into Nevada's favor as it went on its scoring spree.

Rice added four blocks, and Mariah Mock had four kills to led the Lady Tigers. Brooke Sivola contributed a team-high six assists.

Nevada's varsity, 1-1 on the young season, travels to Carthage on Tuesday for its next matches.

In junior varsity action, Nevada beat Harrisonville, 25-21 and 25-12.

In the freshman match, Harrisonville came back from a 25-15 loss to the Lady Tigers in the first game for 25-17, 25-23 win.
