At Firth, the Firth High School volleyball team swept the Bulldogs with set scores of 25-16, 25-17 and 25-18.

“Our team communicated well. Their passes were good and they were scrappy on the floor,” Ririe coach Kathryn Nelson said. “We just needed a extra something tonight.”

Firth’s outside hitters played well, Firth coach Elda Park said. Kiley Mecham had seven kills. Hailey Gee had six kills.

Jordyn Adams finished with five kills and two blocks. Abby Schiess had four kills and six blocks.

“We did well,” Park said. “There’s things we can always improve.”
