Behind double-digit kills from Audrey Nalls and Lacy Mott, the hot start to the volleyball season continued for the Waxahachie Lady Indians on Tuesday with a three-set sweep on the road against Midway.
The Lady Indians made quick work of the host Lady Panthers in sets one and three of the 25-13-25-23, 25-10 win. Waxahachie, which improved to 11-1, has still dropped just two sets through the first eight days of the season.
Nalls led the Lady Indians with 18 kills to push her total to 35 for the week. She recorded 17 in a home sweep of Red Oak on Monday.
Mott added 11 kills against Midway, while Clerkley had eight, and Courtney Crownover finished with six.
Ragan Ward added 35 assists to her 30 recorded against Red Oak to lead the team, and Fayth Hunt chipped in six.
Kate Morgan (5-5) and Anna Rodgers (4-4) were both perfect in the serve-receive game against Midway.
At the service line, Baylee Whitehead recorded a team-high nine points, while Ward had eight and Nalls tallied seven. Hunt led the team with two aces.
The Lady Indians return to action Thursday—Saturday in the Northwest ISD Classic.
