POMONA — West Franklin volleyball swept visiting Chase County on all playing levels to open the season. The Lady Falcons varsity team won 25-19, 25-21 and 25-21, 25-17 Tuesday on Pack the House Night at WFHS, 511 E. Franklin St., Pomona.
Falcon outside hitters Kamryn Prouty, senior, and Jenna Walters, freshman, both had big matches. Prouty led the team with 26 kills, and Walters added 13 kills, five digs and four service aces. Brooke Flory, junior middle blocker, had nine kills, and Alex Coopman, sophomore middle blocker, had a team high seven service aces and three kills. Ainsley Corwine, sophomore setter, had 48 assists, four kills and two service aces.
“Overall I was very pleased on how we played in our first outing of the season,” Angie Corwine, WFHS head volleyball coach, said. “I figured the first match would be a little rough, we are very young. At some points in the match there were two freshman and three sophomores on the court so we are going to hit some rough patches. The second match was much smoother.”
West Franklin had an attack efficiency of 0.397 in the second match, an improvement from the 0.143 efficiency in the first match, Corwine noted.
The varsity team (2-0) plays its first road matches starting 5 p.m. Tuesday at Osage City.
