Until Next Time: Recap of Volleyball Season

Posted by on Dec 7, 2016 in Sports | 0 comments

Coming off a previous eighteen-win season, head coach Kandis Schram looked to come into the 2016 campaign and build off what her 2015 Lady Scots accomplished. What Schram got instead was another 18-win season, far superseding preseason expectations. The immediate dominance of players, like freshman right side hitter Brianne Sidner, and continued consistency of the rest of the team got the Lady Scots back into the post season, to no one in the USA South Conference’s surprise. However, a surprise instead came from the order in which the games were won. The season did not kick off how most were expecting. Schram’s team stumbled initially out of the gate, dropping three consecutive matches after winning the home opener against Tennessee Wesleyan College. The offense would begin to show small flaws in fluidity and rhythm, which led to some of...

As the only four seniors on the Lady Scots roster took the court this past weekend, they looked to lock home court advantage for the first round of the USA South tournament. Danielle Gehr, Kori Jacot, Abrianna Jones and Julia Vineyard walked in to their Senior Day double header wanting to put a stamp on their Scots legacy, and they did just that by taking consecutive matches and moving to 17-14 on the season (10-5 in conference play). Maryville walked into the morning sets against Lagrange on a two match winning streak and kept the momentum going into the postseason. The offense seemed stronger than usual, taking the match 3-1. Despite the outcome, the Lady Scots went for the sweep. Hope ended when they dropped the third set 14-25. Nia Haller had one of her best overall games, delivering...

The Lady Scots are coming out of a rough weekend due to two consecutive losses in two days. Maryville still holds a .500 record with an overall of 13-13, but look to turn in the opposite direction going to the late stretch of the season. The Scots tried to shake off a loss in their last matchup against Piedmont; however, it seemed like something was missing. The ladies wanted to come out and make a statement and turn the tide in their double header on October 15. Maryville started out the morning facing off against Wittenberg University, a scrappy group out of Springfield, Ohio. It seemed as though the Scots weren’t ready in the opening set, dropping it emphatically 25-15. Maryville began to wake up, but couldn’t find their rhythm. Offense was the glaring weakness in this match due...
