PBL eighth-grade volleyball wins in two sets over Clifton J.L. Nash

PAXTON -- The Paxton-Buckley-Loda eighth-grade volleyball team won in two sets (25-12, 25-9) over Clifton J.L. Nash on Tuesday, Feb. 6 -- one day after winning in three sets at home over Milford.
"We played much better tonight," PBL eighth-grade coach Kelli Vaughn said. "I thought we played together, and we did a better job on coverage. We’re still not quite where we want to be, but we’ve got some practice dates coming up where we can continue to make some adjustments."
Addison Oyer had team-highs in kills and aces with five of each category. She also recorded a block while Maisy Johnson had a block.
Emma Steiner had two aces while Sydney Murphy had an ace, nine assists and 20 sets. 
"It was also nice to see some kids really step up off the bench tonight in game two," Vaughn said. "I want those girls to gain some confidence on the floor because we’re going to need everyone as we get closer to tourney time." 
"We are battling some sickness in both the seventh and eighth grades right now, so our main goal is to get everyone healthy as we head into this tough stretch right before the conference tournament on the Feb. 17. We’re looking forward to heading to Watseka on Thursday night to face a program that always plays well against us."
