Lady Indians claim tourney title

bjohnson@tahlequahdailypress.com

Jay Herrin has lofty expectations for his Sequoyah volleyball team in 2013. The Lady Indians cleared the first hurdle on their to-do list this season on Saturday.

Sequoyah polished off their annual tournament with a 2-0 (26-24, 25-22) victory over Oologah to claim the championship at The Place Where They Play.

“I’m very pleased with our win,” Herrin said. “It’s our first time to win the tournament in several years.”

Finishing with 36 kills, 10 digs and four aces, Sequoyah’s Audrey Ballou was named the tournament’s most valuable player. Baylee Herrin — 15 kills, four blocks — and Britanie Wacoche — eight kills, six aces, eight digs — were also named to the all-tournament team.

“The girls are feeling good and they should,” Herrin said. “Oologah was tough, and we had to raise our level of play. We were able to attack their back line with our serves.”

Sequoyah (6-0) returns to the court tonight on the road against Okay — the team the Lady Indians beat to get to the tournament finals.
