Prospect remains perfect with sweep

KLAMATH FALLS — Remarkably efficient serving served the undefeated Prospect volleyball team well in a Mountain Valley League match against Hosanna Christian on Friday.

The Cougars were successful on 98 percent of their serves in a 25-13, 25-19, 25-15 victory.

"That doesn't happen very often," Prospect coach Marcy Gallagher conceded.

Prospect is 7-0 overall and 5-0 in league.

The Cougars have won league titles the last two seasons, been to state the past three years and have had the league's player of the year the past three seasons.

There's no indication of any letup in dominance with this year's edition.

The team is made up primarily of juniors, with setter Megan Shallenberger the lone senior on the squad.

"We started building the team last summer when we went to a camp," said Gallagher. "They've been working together since July. They've had a long time to jell. There's only one senior, so we're fairly young."

The Cougars got another fine effort from their top players, hitters Becky Musard and Jen King and setters Shallenberger and Catherine Anderson.

"They step up pretty much every match," said Gallagher.

Musard, a defensive specialist last year, had an impressive statistical line: eight kills, six blocks, three digs, two aces and 15 of 15 serving.

Anderson and Shallenberger each recorded 10 assists; King had five kills, two blocks and was 13 of 13 serving, and Brie Zelnar notched four kills.

NORTH LAKE 3, BUTTE FALLS 0 — At Silver Lake, Brianna Wright had five kills and two blocks for Butte Falls, which lost by scores of 25-12, 25-20, 25-19 in the Mountain Valley League match.

The Loggers are 2-5, 2-4 in league.

Carlee Stephenson added five assists and three kills for Butte Falls, and Cheyenna Kirkpatrick had four assists.
