The University Liggett girls’ volleyball team struggled in its opening game against visiting Lutheran South last week.The Knights lost 25-22, but head coach Joe LaMagno gave his players a vote of confidence between games.The result was a win as the Knights won the next three games 25-10, 25-19, 25-16 in dominating fashion.“It’s no secret that we always start off slow and lose the first game,” LaMagno said. “We have to play better right out of the gate.In the opening game, senior Tori Wuthrich had seven consecutive aces, while in game two, sophomore Courtney deRuiter came up big assisting on kill attempts and defensively.In the third and fourth games, Wuthrich, her sister, sophomore Kacie Wuthrich, and senior Ashley Rahi, played well in all areas of the game to lift the Knights to a second straight win.Sophomore Olivia Wujek and deRuiter stepped up and had key points as the Knights won going away. Lutheran South was tied early, but an offensive surge lifted the home team to the victory.Senior Colleen Klimek was steady on the back row and junior Sarah Edmonds played well. Senior Courtney Slabaugh was tough on kills until she left the match after spraining an ankle. A few days of rest will get her back on the court.
