Prep sports: Braves get V-ball win at Bloomfield

BLOOMFIELD — After getting over the usual opening match nerves, Terre Haute South gave a preview of its potential on the high school volleyball court en route the a season-opening 3-0 win over host Bloomfield.

South’s Braves earned a 25-16, 25-19, 25-21 victory at Guy Glover Gymnasium that pleased interim head coach Stephanie Millington.

“I think they had a little bit of nerves at the beginning [of the match], they kind of worked through those and showed how they can play,” Millington said.

Freshman setter Natalie Scamihorn made her varsity debut with 25 assists, served two aces and came up with big plays when the Braves needed them.

Senior Bailee Williams made 12 kills at the net, but the Braves also got big plays from Maddie Callahan and Meaghan Etling.

“I think Callahan kind of got us out of our funk in the first game and that helped us get rid of those nerves and go from there,” Millington said.

Sophomore Riley Davis put some clockwork into the Braves’ offense in games one and two. She had 12 digs and the Davis-to-Scamihorn-to-hitter got South rolling, particularly in game two.

Bloomfield took an early 6-3 lead in game one before South tied the score 6-6. A kill by Callahan put South up for good at 14-13 and the Braves pulled away with Callahan and Etling hammering the ball.

South never trailed in game two, jumping out to a 5-0 lead on Etling’s serve and a kill by Allison Kittell. A tip by Scamihorn scored the final point for the Braves.

Bloomfield put South in just the position Millington may have wanted. The Cardinals took a 10-3 on the Braves with Lachance putting down five kills in the contest.

“I think it was just important for [the girls] to start playing together as a team. There are a lot of different things, like the mix of girls, and I think they need to become one team and work together,” Millington said.

And playing together is how the Brave rallied to win game three.

South took a 15-14 lead on a kill by Williams. After trading the lead, the Braves went ahead for good on a Cardinal error and a Williams block. A kill by Emma Burke cut the Braves up 24-21 and an Bloomfield error ended the match.
