What an outstanding match the GHS volleyball team delivered Oct. 13 when they hosted the Harlem Lady Wildcats. Pink night was celebrated by both teams and by most of the fans who packed into Scottie Gymnasium for the match. Both the C-Squad and JV teams won their matches, and then it was varsity's turn.

The game began with a sign of good sportsmanship as the Scotties presented the Wildcats with pink hair ribbons, worn to honor people affected by breast cancer. Following team introductions, it was game time.

Glasgow opened strong and never looked back. Aggressive serving was the name of the game as the Scotties tallied a season-high 25 aces by the time the match was over. With Harlem scrambling at times to keep the ball alive, GHS maintained control of their own side of the court. Passing was superb, which allowed them to add some tough, and varied offense to the mix as several girls racked up the kills. All around, Glasgow played a nicely-balanced match.

When it was over, a very focused Glasgow team came out on top: 25-7, 25-11, 25-6.

Catch the final regular season home game on Thursday, Oct. 20, versus class A Sidney. This will also be senior night for Kiauna Barstad, Khloe Krumwiede and Teagan Fossum. C-squad begins at 4 p.m., JV around 5:15 p.m. and varsity at approximately 6:30 p.m.

Statistically, Khloe Krumwiede and Kiauna Barstad led the team in kills with five each, Baylie Chappell finished with the most aces (10) and digs (4), and Teagan Fossum acheived 14 assists.
