Mark Carlson, Reporter

The cards beat rival Perry Meridian 3-0.  SHS won the first match 25-14, and the next two 25-21.

In the first match, the cards streaked to a five to nothing lead and never looked back. In the second game the cards were able to maintain a small lead for the entire game and scored the last two points to win. In the third and ultimately final game, the cards struggled to return the ball over the net.

During the game the cards occasionally seemed to lack energy. They played “lifeless”  and could not get the ball over the net according to assistant coach Brock Chipman.

“We played (sluggish) the entire game, and we need to re-learn how to hit the ball,” Chipman said.

During the third game, Perry got all but nine of its 21 points from unforced errors by SHS. Even with their struggles, the cards never trailed by more than four points in any of the matches.

In the final game the cards trailed 20-17. They went on a eight to one run to finish out the match.

“We just played bad, but we won,” Chipman said. “We didn’t play as good as we should’ve.”
