Salado Varsity Lady Eagles jumped out on the Lady Ducks of Taylor Sept. 24 and never let up as they cruised to a straight sets victory with scores of 25-14, 25-15, 25-23.
It was a welcome sight for the Red Posse to see the return of captain and four-year letter, Lainey Taylor, but it was Sophomore OH Reese Rich that would lead the Lady Eagles. Rich was a problem for the Lady Ducks all afternoon as she enjoyed 12 kills and an ace.
Close behind Rich was Taylor who swung her way to 11 kills and a stuff block from the right side.
Defensively, Salado got phenomenal serve-receive out of Sara Ellis and Jordan Ferguson who paved the way for another big night from Setter Haleigh Wilk. Wilk amassed 36 assists and 8 kills of her own in another big night.
