Tinkering with different lineups at the start of its match with visiting Weston Ranch, East Union’s girls volleyball team eventually got its act together for a 25-23, 21-25, 25-12, 25-9 win Wednesday at Dalben Center.
The Lancers (1-1, 6-3 overall) played their Valley Oak League opener the previous night and dropped a five-set marathon at Kimball.
“The girls had to rally together,” East Union coach Chelsea Herrera said. “We had a different rotation that took some getting used to, and once they did they attacked it.”
Miekayla Surnip clobbered 16 kills while adding two blocks, nine digs, six assists and four aces. Bayle Spencer contributed eight kills and six blocks. Melissa Scogna pitched in with seven kills, six blocks, three aces and four aces.
The Lancers have a tough week ahead with reigning VOL champion Central Catholic and Oakdale up next. But first, they’ll head to Red Bluff for a tournament. Weston Ranch falls to 0-2 in league, 2-8 overall.
