St. Thomas More Volleyball Team Hands Scoopers First Loss


Terry Anderson, KBHB Sports - September 2, 2020

STURGIS, S.D. – Behind some dominating front line play, the St. Thomas More Cavalier volleyball team beat the Sturgis Scoopers on Tuesday, Sept. 1 at West Gymnasium.

The Scoopers could not generate momentum during any set, losing their first match of the season to the Cavs, 25-16, 25-16 and 25-18.  Sturgis got behind early in sets one and two, but led early in set three before the Cavaliers used stifling defense to shut down the Scooper offense.

Haleigh Timmer, Reece Ross and Sarah Matthes dominated play at the net for St. Thomas More, contesting every kill opportunity by the Scoopers.  Timmer ended the night with nine kills, three blocks and two aces.  Matthes showed Sturgis her setting skills, contributing 13 assists, two kills and two aces. 

Joellen Cano had a great night for the Scoopers with nine assists, two aces and one dig.  Brinley Pickett added four kills and two blocks and Makayla Keffeler chipped in six kills.  Ella Johnson, the Sturgis libero, tallied six digs, one kill and one assist.

Sturgis, 1-1 on the season, faces Aberdeen Central, 2-0, on the road in their next scheduled match on Saturday, Sept. 5.
