SUTTON — The Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School volleyball team triumphed in their tri-match against Clay County Middle School and Braxton County Middle School on Saturday. After losing one and winning one last week against Philip Barbour and Preston County, the Little Lady Bucs knew what they had to do to take home the win this time.

Against Clay County Middle, Bailey Radabaugh led in digs with a total of 14. Reagan Mason followed closely behind with 12, while Sophie Lantz added 11, Rebecca Pastorius recorded 9, Makenzie Egress contributed 4, and Molly Radabaugh had 3. Coach Sheena Westfall noted, “The main thing going into this game was for the girls to keep their energy and limit mistakes and continue with good coverage and keeping good spacing. Reagan Mason had one of her best games at the net, with Sophie Lantz and Bailey Radabaugh being forces as well.” 

The match against Braxton County Middle went just as well and led B-UMS to victory. Pastorius led in aces with 5, while Molly Radabaugh claimed 3, Bailey Radabaugh added 1, and Makenzie Egress had 1. 

“These girls did not only take control at the net, but they took control defensively for us as well. Pastorius and Molly Radabaugh took control at the serving line for us,” said Coach Westfall. 

The B-UMS varsity volleyball team’s overall record is now set at 9-5. The next two contests will be played away with the first on Tuesday, October 29 at Philip Barbour and the second on Wednesday, October 30 at Kasson.
