Fredericksburg High School’s varsity volleyball team defeated Harper High School in the “Battle of Gillespie County” on Monday night in Harper.
The Billies won three of four sets: 25-18, 25-10, 21-25 and 25-18.
A key to Fredericksburg’s success during the match was height on the front line.
“We were able to spread our kills around the net,” Fredericksburg head coach Jason Roemer said.
Part of their success up front is attributed to Kendyl Stevens who recorded 33 assists during the four sets against the Longhorns.
Stevens suffered an injury during the weekend scrimmages, and was not a guarantee to play in the game against Harper.
“I was proud of her for gutting it out and running our team on the offensive end in an efficient manner,” Roemer said.
When the Billies needed a kill, Adrianna Hartmann was the go-to player. Hartmann recorded 17 kills with only two errors during the game.
