Junior RaChelle Leiken had a nice introduction to Lady Vandals volleyball.
On the first point of Tuesday night's South Central Conference match, senior Haley Wollerman set the ball to
Leiken, a transfer student from Oregon, who promptly dropped an authoritative kill in between two East Alton-Wood River players.
Vandalia would continue on from there, using high-flying leaps and powerful kills throughout the match to beat the Lady Oilers, 25-10, 25-19.
"The initial pre-game jitters needed to get out of our system," said coach Allison Brown. "But overall, we played well."
