The Panthers won by game scores of 25-13, 25-21.
Shull had seven aces, Jenkins five and Battcher four. Shull also contributed two kills, while Mira Kumagai and Sage Hubkey added one each.
“All players played great today with great back row defense by Courtney Battcher and Montanna MacPherson,” coach Rick Jenkins noted.
PWL also won the seventh grade match against South Tahoe, 25-16, 25-8.
“Because of an illness, several players were playing out of their normal positions, but still managed a win,” coach Dan Hannah noted.
Hannah went on to praise the performances of Emma Glover and Molly Cloutier from the service line. Cloutier also had a “very good hitting match at the net.”
Kristyn Webb stood out in her increased role as setter, the coach added.
