Summit eighth graders remain undefeated in volleyball league

The Summit Middle School eighth grade A volleyball team beat Lake County Thursday in straight straight sets to remain undefeated.

The 7-0 Tigers were led by Kimmie Baker, Kelly Berger, Kelsey Berkley, Sharayah Dossett, Chelsee Farrell, Billie McCauley, Katie Sodergren and Ariel Strickler.

Earlier in the week, the Tigers needed three games to defeat East Grand.

The eighth grade B team is also unbeaten this year. It defeated Lake County Thursday behind strong play from Kealy Bowers, Laurel Broten, Allison Brozovich, Hanah Dudley, Marie Oberriter and Cheyenne Spauling.

“I’m proud of the girls and the teamwork they display,” coach Kristie Berkley said.

“We’ll have to play our best to beat Buena Vista this weekend.

The Tigers play host to Buena Vista Saturday at Summit Middle School at 10 a.m.

Seventh graders fall

to Lake County

The seventh grade Summit volleyball A Team was defeated by the Lake County Panthers at a home game Thursday. They had beat the Panthers earlier in the season.

Bayley Donahue led the team with spectacular sets to Steph Snyder, who led the team in kills. Julie Oberriter teamed up with Catie Woessner, Jeana Holman and Kali Turrin to help Summit’s scoring.

“Some of the girls were having an off night, but they were making a great effort to pull out the tough plays,” coach Julie Ogden said. “I’m sure we can look forward to a victory the next time we play the Panthers at the League Championships in October.”

The B team, meanwhile, also fell to the Panthers. Shelby Pedersen, Reanna Abare and Kaitlin Leach led the team with excellent serves, while Cody Seaboldt, Loreli Salas and Taryn Grosskrenz set up excellent plays to Hannah Barton and Markie Oogii.
