Bethlehem Academy Beats WEM in Battle of Top Ten Ranked Teams

Faribault Bethlehem Academy outlasted Waterville-Elysian-Morristown 3-1 in a battle of top ten ranked Class A teams. Senior Mary Campbell had a big hand in the Cardinals earning their first win on the season by slamming down approximately 30 kills. No. 4 Bethlehem Academy (1-3) traded blows with No. 9 WEM (2-2) through the first two sets with neither team able to make a big run. BA won the first game 26-24 and WEM took the second set 25-20.

The trend continued to start the third set. But that changed with the score tied at 11-11 and sophomore Laney Donahue stepping to the service line for the Cardinals. She reeled off the next ten points, including a pair of aces, and BA sailed on to a 25-15 win. Donahue made several sliding digs on the night.

WEM led early in the fourth set, but a four-point burst by Bethlehem Academy put them ahead 14-11 and they never trailed again on the way to a 25-21 win. Freshman Toryn Richards led the Buccaneers with about a dozen kills and five aces. Junior Alexis Morsching had nearly ten kills.

The match was the fourth straight against a state ranked team for BA, who plays at a tournament at Shakopee Saturday where they are likely to face similar opposition. WEM hosts an event Saturday in Waterville.
