Three players recorded 10 kills in the game for the 24-9 Lady Steers. Cerbi Ritchey, Morgan Seaton and Taylor Seaton all three hit the double digit mark to lead the team.

“The main goal was to get these guys working together,” Kessler said. “As you can tell, by the way they are working on her … it worked.”
