Lady Trojans best Valley, stay unbeaten in district play

DRUMMOND – The Lady Trojans earned a hard-fought win from the Lady Eagles of Valley Christian Tuesday night 3-1. The victory keeps them with an unblemished record in District 13C play at 7-0 as they enter the second have their schedule.

“This was good,” said DHS Head Coach Paige Fickler of Drummond’s play Tuesday. “There was a little bit of a lull in the third, but I think the fact that we hit as well as we did tomorrow we focus on getting the pass up because I think our hitters are pretty unstoppable when everyone is firing.”

And firing they were.

Three different Lady Trojans double figures in kills, led by senior Liz Perry with 14. Holly Hauptman and Delaney Wagner were right behind with 12 apiece. Wagner’s overall play earned her the Kiko’s Mexican restaurant Player of the Game award.

Making all off those hits and more happen was setter Jesse Struna who delivered 34 assists on the night.

Despite winning the first two sets, Drummond struggled early as the match opened. But Fickler thinks inspiration to pull out of that mind set and right the ship came from within.

“We talk a lot about ‘being energy’ and finding motivation from within and with each other,” Fickler said of her team’s ability to bounce back. “Celebrate every point. We’re just a team that takes a little bit of time to get going. We talk a lot about supporting each other, because sometimes it means a lot more to them if the encouragement is coming from a teammate and not from me.”

Perry had half the team’s blocks with two, Hauptman was tops in service aces with six and Bailey Park was the top digger at 16.

The Lady Trojans have just one day of before they must play the second place team in the district Thursday against Seeley Swan. The Lady Blackhawks lost to Drummond in the first round but beat them for the Mineral County Tournament title Saturday in Superior.
