Myrtle turned in a dominant opening set thanks in large part to the serving prowess of Kierstyn Shoops. The hits kept coming and the Lady Hawks picked up a sweep on the road at Falkner on Tuesday.
Shoops was on serve for 19 points in the opening set as Myrtle won the first set 25-4 en route to a 3-0 victory by scores of 25-4, 25-11, 25-9. Shoops would finish with 13 aces on the night and would be on serve for the games final point as well.
The Lady Hawks ended a 4 game losing skid with the victory and they have one more non-region contest, Thursday against TCPS, before they get in to region play at home against Pine Grove on September 14th.
The victory moved Myrtle to 8-6 on the season.
Shoops would add 3 kills to go with her 13 aces. Kinsley Gordon contributed 6 aces and 7 kills. Emm Mayer had a number of forceful kills at the net, putting up 11 in the match to go with 5 aces.
Other contributors were Kinzie Waits with a pair of aces and kills, Cora Kelly with 4 aces and a pair of kills and Mollie Moody with 4 aces and 3 kills.
