STATE BOUND

Kiara Knox’s jump serve was a potent weapon, forcing opponents into bad passes and free balls.

Critical to Clifton-Clyde’s offense was senior setter Payton Fahey’s ability to get to the ball and deliver it to the net for a Clifton-Clyde spike. Here, she does a jumping back set to keep the ball in playable condition.

Roooof! While Clifton-Clyde spent most of their time on the attack, the team’s blocking frustrated the opponents’ hitting game during the substate tournament. They were able to subdue Centralia’s strong attack, which helped the Eagles toward their substate win.

Game 1 – 25-13

Clifton-Clyde looked unbeatable in their first of three games against St. John’s/ Tipton. Clifton-Clyde’s three main hitters, Kiara Knox, Hannah Kindel and Mallory Callihan, combined for 16 kills in that game alone. With senior setter Payton Girard putting the ball perfectly into place near the net for her teammates to hit the ball, it was like Clifton-Clyde was going through spiking drills with no blockers to stop them. The BlueJays tried slowing Clifton-Clyde’s momentum with a couple time outs, but nothing could stop them and Clifton-Clyde won the first game 25-13.
