BOURBON - The Big Blue Slam hosted and won the Triton Invitational on Saturday. The Lady Trojans cruised through pool play defeating Caston 25-8, 25-13; Culver 25-5, 25-6; and Bremen 18-25, 25-10, 15-8.
The championship was a rematch of the season opener between John Glenn and Triton. You might remember that the Falcons defeated the Trojans 2-3 back on August 17, however, this time around was different. The Lady Trojans found their groove early in the championship match and never looked back taking down the Falcons 25-17, 25-18.
Those making the most impact on the day were Emma Hepler (77 assists), Addyson Viers (30 kills), Abbey Viers (27 kills and 8 blocks), Lexia Hostrawser (21 kills, 4 aces, and 4 blocks), Molly McFarland (36 digs), Kinsey Atkins (21 digs), and Madeline Doll (5 aces).
With the four wins, Triton improves to 11-4 on the season. The Big Blue Slam will go for 6 wins in a row Tuesday when the team travels to Elkhart Christian Academy for a 6:00 pm JV first serve.
