Huskies sweep Delta

Special to the DailyBattle Mountain libero Kelsey Plath digs one up again Delta Saturday in the Huskies' sweep of the Panthers.

DELTA ” The way Battle Mountain volleyball saw it, the Huskies could make a long day even longer or just get it over with.

They chose the latter.

After a long bus ride, Battle Mountain made short work of Delta, sweeping the Panthers, 25-22, 25-17, 25-16.

“It’s a long trip, knowing that you’re going to have a short match,” Huskies coach Brian Doyon said. “It was matter of playing our game. It would be a quick day or a long, bad day. The girls went in there focused and relaxed. Delta had some runs, but our girls stayed in system and took care of it.”

Anna Padget-Shields put down 12 kills, while Sam Miletich and Hannah Ellison logged six each. Kelsey Plath and Cara Murbach led the team in digs with 14 and 11, respectively. Erin Barker kept everyone moving with 25 assists.

Battle Mountain (4-1, 2-0) also avoided the trap of looking ahead to Tuesday when the Huskies host Eagle Valley at 6 p.m.

“I think that’s part of it,” Doyon said. “It’s good to get this under our belt, so that Monday we can get ready for Eagle. It’s going to be a tough game. Everyone’s going to be energized.”
