[September 05, 2018]    In Tuesday night volleyball action from Mount Pulaski the Lady Toppers swept the Warrensburg-Latham Cardinals.


The Mount Pulaski JV team won in three sets, 23-25, 26-24 and 15-9.

The Mount Pulaski Varsity improved to 3-0 with a win in two sets, 25-20 and 25-15.

The win was pretty typical for how things have been playing out for the Lady Toppers this season. Skylar Hayes struck early with a kill and before long the Lady Toppers had a 6-0 lead. Things happen along the way and next thing you know the game is tied at 15-15. A couple more Mount Pulaski kills and great defensive plays and the Lady Toppers are back on top 20-15. Throw down a kill by Morgan May and the Lady Toppers momentum allows them to march to a 25-20 win in set one.

Set two was a lot smoother for the Lady Toppers. Abigail Fitzpatrick's kill had Mount Pulaski leading 7-1 quickly. The score was 10-3 after another kill by May. Hayes made the score 13-8 with her annihilation of the ball. Fitzpatrick, who was pretty busy digging the ball all night long, managed to have time for another kill to keep the lead in tact, 19-13 the score. And finally May said,"Let's get this over with." Her kill drew the loudest applause because with that one powerful swing it was game over and Mount Pulaski won 25-15.

Mount Pulaski will travel to Greenview Thursday night for a 6 p.m. JV match. Varsity will follow.
