Photo Gallery, Roundup: Ellwood vs. New Castle volleyball plus other action!


The Ellwood City Lincoln High girls volleyball team rolled up a victory last night.

The Lady Wolverines eased to a 25-9, 25-10, 25-10 nonsection home win over New Castle.

Ellwood City (5-3) competes in the WPIAL in Class AA, while the Lady ’Canes are in their final season of independent status.

“I thought my team played very well,” Lady Wolverines coach Kim Frampton said. “There were times they became unfocused. But they passed well and communicated well.

“We served extremely well, too. Overall, I thought it was just a great performance by us.”

Asia Borders recorded nine kills and five blocks for Ellwood City and Isabella Williams contributed 12 assists.

Amber Leech posted 10 digs for the victors and Angela McCowin chipped in with five blocks and five kills. Carson Kegel served up five aces.

“I think everybody contributed in the victory for us,” Frampton said. “My team is pretty equal. Everyone really does a good job of stepping up and helping us win.”

Said Lady ’Canes coach Michael Spelich, “We’ve dealt with a variety of unexpected issues and lineup changes. Sarita Anderson was injured in the first scrimmage and she’s working her way back into the lineup for the first time. Velvet Wade was out of the lineup (last night). I think we’ve adjusted well on a day-to-day basis. I think we made some mistakes against Ellwood City and they did a great job of capitalizing on them. We’ll work on correcting these mistakes (today) in practice.”

There was no JV match.

Union knocked off Beaver County Christian in Section 3-A action at home, 25-16, 25-20, 25-22.

Morgan Miller led the Lady Scots (3-4, 4-6) with six kills and Dacia Neely was next with seven digs. Tyanna Harris added 10 assists.

Casey Brophy served up five aces for the winners and Allyson Conrad followed with three digs.

“We finally put a whole game together and we finally played hard for three games. We didn’t let up,” Union coach Bob Miller said.

Beaver County Christian won the JV match, 25-8, 25-19.
