BUCYRUS — The Bucyrus Lady Redmen volleyball squad played host to the Northmor Lady Golden Knights on Monday evening in non-conference action.
Northmor would have no issues with their hosts, winning in straight sets to remain undefeated; 25-15, 25-9, 25-18. The Knights are now 11-0 overall on the season and remain atop the Knox-Morrow Athletic Conference standings alongside the Highland Lady Fighting Scots at 6-0. Bucyrus falls to 2-11 overall and sit winless in the Northern-10 Athletic Conference at 0-6.

Macy Miracle turned in seven kills on 14/15 attacking while Anna Donner also chimed in with seven kills. Leslie Brubaker contributed five kills and Lily Tate got in on the action with four kills.
Donner was the leading setter on the evening, posting a 35/35 performance en route to recording 15 assists. Miracle added a dozen assists and Tate chipped in five.
Defensively, Kincaid, Brubaker and Hanna Bentley racked up two blocks apiece at the net to thwart a potential Bucyrus threat. Aly Blunk finished the game with 12 digs while Abby Donner and Miracle each posted four.
