Reddies Show-ed Up And Show-ed Out

Reddies Weather The Storm For A 5-Game Win Streak

Reddies volleyball began their two-day homestand in Duke-Wells Gym Thursday night against the Southeastern Oklahoma Savage Storm. Coming off of a triumphant trip to Oklahoma Baptist and Southern Nazarene, Henderson looks to continue their dominance over the GAC’s Oklahoma schools.

The match would begin with the Storm taking an early lead, but the Reddies would trail but only for a moment. HSU would take the lead at 4-4 and not look back, winning the set by five with a score of 25-20.

Set two saw the emergence of junior outside hitter Sabrina Show, as she made it look easy at the net. Her prominence in the second set would propel the Reddies into a lead of as much as 15, defeating the Storm 25-10 for the set win.

“I worked on hitting high hands and deep corners also because I know that works for me,” said Show after the match.

“We’ve been working on attacking high hands, staying away from those middle blockers, and [Show] did a really good job of that tonight,” said Coach McDaniel.

The intermission, though only a matter of minutes, slowed the Reddies’ momentum. Southeastern Oklahoma would sneak up on HSU and take an eight-point lead in the third set before head coach Philip McDaniel took a timeout to regroup the Reddies squad. The wake-up call did make an impact, but not before the Savage Storm would strike and score a set win of 25-10.

Henderson went up 3-1 in set four and eventually extended that lead to 21-7, with 14 points being their second-largest lead of the match. HSU would quiet the Storm with a 25-13 set match and their fifth consecutive win. They wrap up their homestand Friday afternoon in a match with East Central University.
