The Shawnee Lady Wolves didn't play their best volleyball Tuesday night but they controlled all three sets in a sweep over Newcastle.
Shawnee won 25-23, 25-18 and 25-16.
"We got better as the match went on," Coach Julia Holland said. "After the long weekend with nothing, we needed practice this morning to get us going."
Holland said her team was on a bit of a roller coaster Tuesday.
"We had the long break and I think that was some of it," she said. "We had one go down in warm-ups and that throws a kink in things, too."
Quineshia Carr had a lower leg injury during warm-ups.
Brooklyn Fluke was dominant in the first set. She did a great job hitting it from the outside. Fluke had one ace and 12 kills in the match.
Ashley Kasterke did a great job on her serve as she alternated between a serve with pace and a knuckleball serve that kept the racers off balance all night.
Olivia Barlean was solid on serve again Tuesday but her 20 digs kept the Lady Wolves in points and kept Newcastle off the scoreboard.
Emily Hamblin had four kills and LaRai McVea did a great job of poaching some Newcastle sets and also picked up three kills of her own.
The Lady Wolves are back in action at 9 a.m. Friday in a tournament in Catoosa.
That 6A No. 12 Lady Wolves improved to 9-4 with their only losses coming to 4A No. 1 Christian Heritage, 5A No. 3 Bishop McGuinness (twice) and 5A No. 14 Carl Albert. The Lady Wolves have wins over 3A No. 3 Lincoln Christian, 6A No. 11 Owasso and 6A No. 15 Choctaw.
