Cardington Pirates

Cardington avenged their 2018 district semifinal loss when they opened the new season of volleyball by defeating Pleasant by a 25-18, 25-16, 25-17 margin.

“Great start to the season,” said head coach Ryan Treese. “Great team win and all-around win. At points, we had four freshmen on the court and we didn’t miss a beat — we could not tell they were freshmen.”

Of those freshmen, Audrey Brininger had 10 kills and 15 digs, while Cadie Long tallied 20 digs. Also, senior Hannah Wickline had eight kills and two blocks and junior Kayleigh Bonnette finished with 36 assists.
