CARL JUNCTION, Mo. -- The Nevada Lady Tiger volleyball team was 4-2 in its pool of the Dr. Jeffrey Knutzen Classic at Carl Junction High School Saturday.
"The tournament this weekend had many good quality teams and we played the toughest competition we've had so far," Lady Tigers head coach Ashley Thoreson said. "We were very inconsistent and had a hard time playing intense throughout the entire day. It is always good to play tough competition to show us what we need to work on to get better and we will continue to work on our consistency and ball control."
The Lady Tigers were second in the red pool, behind a 5-1 Shiloh Christian squad. In the Gold bracket, Branson eliminated Nevada in three sets, by the final scores of 25-14, 23-25 and 25-11. Branson was eliminated by Joplin in the semi-finals in two before Carl Junction defeated Joplin, 25-11 and 25-18, in the title match.
Rilie Good led the Lady Tigers with 29 kills on the day, while posting another team-high 11 blocks. Morgan McNeley recorded 47 assists while Bree Reppert finished with 38 digs.
The Lady Tigers are scheduled to be back in action on tomorrow, when they begin what could be a tough week with a visit to Joplin for a varsity/JV/freshmen tripleheader that is set to begin at 5 p.m.
"We have another tough week of games against some top teams in the area, so we hope to learn from this weekend and continue to improve as a team and individually," Thoreson said.
