Delta spikes GHS netters

By Wayne Crick

Senior Lexi Quinn fueled a three-set victory in volleyball for Delta's Panthers last Thursday, Sept. 14, in Gunnison. An earlier meeting in the season was a 2-1 win for the Cowboys.

Quinn had plenty of help at the net with junior Lauren Davey hammering home eight kills, senior Elena Gilliam knocking down seven kills and sophomore Sara Geddes adding six kills in the win.

Abby Carlson posted two aces and finished the match with 30 assists.

In the digs' department, senior Harlee Roberts finished with 13, Geddes had nine and senior Kat Rodriguez had eight.

Roberts and Quinn had 17 and 12 service receptions for the Panthers.

The Panthers (1-0, 7-4) trail Aspen (2-0, 4-0) and Coal Ridge (1-0, 4-0) in 3A WSL standings following last week's play. Gunnison is fourth (2-1, 5-4).

Delta hosted Caprock Academy on Tuesday (Sept. 18 with results appearing in next week's DCI) and won't play again until Sept. 28 in Olathe.
