Repmo Volleyball Wins Fifth Straight

Republic volleyball won its fifth straight match Monday, sweeping Mt. Vernon on the road, 25-17, 25-15, 25-20.

Kailey Manes went on the attack, piling up 14 kills to lead the team. Rilynn Finley put up a big night defensively on the front row, with four blocks. Mykenzie Hicks also contributed to the defensive success with 13 digs.

Setter Payge Plank had 32 assists and added two service aces.

During its five-match winning streak, Republic has dropped just one set. That was in a 3-1 win over Springfield Central. The Lady Tigers have swept Glendale, Camdenton, Marshfield, and Mt. Vernon for the other four wins during the streak. They’re 9-3 overall.

Republic will be at home Tuesday for a conference match against Neosho. They’ll also celebrate Senior Night, honoring two seniors – Megan Decker and Hicks – before the varsity match.
