GREENVILLE – The Greenville Lady Wave hosted Springfield Central Catholic and the Tri-Village Lady Patriots to a Monday night volleyball scrimmage for both the varsity and JV programs.
Greenville was coming off an excellent first scrimmage of the season at Covington but experience a little setback due to an injury to the team’s 2022 starting setter, Kindyl Peltz.
“This is our second scrimmage,” said Greenville head coach, Michelle Hardesty. “They were phenomenal the other day at Covington but we also lost our setter so there are a little different dynamics happening this scrimmage, what we were seeing for the first week of the season and during preseason.”
Freshman, Megan Loudy played well for the Lady Wave as the team’s setter following a short amount of play from Peltz early in the night’s action.
Assistant coach, Jim Hardesty believes the team will be back on schedule when Peltz returns to where they are expected to be at this time in the preseason.
“She’ll be out for another day or two and then she should be ready to go by Thursday,” he said. “We didn’t do too bad with a freshman setter – the first time she had ever seen varsity action so she really didn’t do too bad.”
“Freshman setter running the 5-1 and we have a couple freshman out there passing the ball,” Coach Michelle Hardesty said. “Our lineups really aren’t set yet so not terrible but they set the bar kind of high for themselves. I feel like they are going to be really competitive this season. Learning is what it was about tonight.”
“We can hit the ball, I am really pleased with that,” Hardesty added. “It’s just getting them the ball. We have great passer, a freshman and sophomore setter basically right now with Kindyl Peltz being hurt that’s hurting dynamics but Megan Loudy is going to go places. She just has a lot to learn with setter choices and things like that. It was just a learning experience today. It’s a scrimmage, there were frustrating moments but it’s a scrimmage and that’s about seeing what we have and learning.”
