Schultz, Bean lead Huskies past Red Raiders

Cardinal used a team effort to power past visiting Harvey on Thursday.

The Huskies, who improved to 8-3 overall and 6-0 in league play, beat the Red Raiders, 25-11, 25-6 and 25-12.

“I think that as a whole we played well today and I think overall I played as best as I could,” said Jordyn Schultz, who had three aces, seven kills and 12 digs. “We were able to spread the ball around well to everyone on the court tonight, so it gave everyone an opportunity to show what we can do.”

Cardinal struggled to a fourth place finish at the Chardon Tournament on Saturday so it was important for the Huskies to get back on the winning track on Tuesday.

“We had some tough losses Saturday,” said Maddie Bean, who finished with nine service aces, 19 assists and 12 digs. “I think as a team we realized we needed to come back and prove ourselves. Keeping the momentum is a key in volleyball. Whoever has the momentum will take the game. No matter what happened with the play we stay positive with each other knowing we have to keep the momentum.”

Trisha Cesar pitched in with three aces and two kills. Hanna Traggiai dug 15 balls and Kaylee Klepper had five aces, three kills and nine digs.

Faith Peters had an ace, five kills and 10 digs, Camille Cummins had four kills, three digs and an ace and Ashly Gubanyar contributed with three digs.

“There are some things that we need to work out as a team, but we worked on it at practice (on Monday) and we did a phenomenal job of being positive and working hard,” Schultz said. “Moving forward and getting better is what we have to do for the remainder of the season, and I know that we'll be able to push through no matter what.”

The Huskies travel to Cuyahoga Heights on Thursday.
