FREDERICKTOWN — The Fredericktown Freddies (8-6) chalked up a sweep last night, but they got about all they could handle from the visiting East Knox Bulldogs (13-5) in Wednesday’s volleyball match.
The former Mid-Buckeye Conference foes renewed their rivalry with the Freddies winning their nonconference clash, 25-20, 25-22, 25-23.
The feisty Bulldogs, lacking Fredericktown’s height advantage, protected their end of the floor, getting underneath a number of shots from the Freddies’ big hitters.
Tied at 14 in the opening set, Fredericktown hitter Emily Williams (23 kills, 15 digs) scored to put her team ahead. She missed the next point, taking a feed from Freddies’ setter Katie Ruhl only to blast the ball out of bounds beyond the baseline in an attempt to get around the Bulldog’s back line. Ruhl would finish the evening with 43 assists.
“We tried to outsmart (East Knox) a bit, but they’re a good team so we had to step up our game,” said Ruhl.
