GAS CITY–Sophomore setter Macy Bell has not gotten much playing time this year. But with the absence of starter Aubree Dwiggins, Bell got her chance to shine.

And she took full advantage.

Bell set a career high with 38 assists and sophomore Gracie King pounded 20 kills as Pendleton Heights rolled past Mississinewa 21-25, 25-21, 25-21, 25-21 Tuesday evening.

With the win, Pendleton Heights improves to 16-14 and is set for a home matchup tonight against class 2A #1 Alexandria. Mississinewa dropped to 20-6.

Bell entered the match having played just 12 sets on the season and had handed out 25 assists. For good measure, she also served four aces, also a career high.

Dwiggins, averaging 19 assists per match, is out of town with family this week.

In addition to her 20 kills, King added two blocks while senior Brinkley Gary was good for 12 kills and four aces. Sophomore Averi Lanman had nine kills and four blocks, junior Gracie Criswell had four aces, and sophomore Ally Hall led the Arabians with 13 digs.

Gary and Michelle Merryman will be honored during senior night ceremonies prior to tonight’s match against the Tigers.
