EA Defeats St. Amant on Senior Night

Senior night proved special for four East Ascension seniors as the Spartans defeated St. Amant in four sets, 25-21, 22-25, 25-19 and 25-22 last Tuesday evening at the Spartan gym in Gonzales.

EA (21-6, 4-1) extended their winning streak to nine matches and avenged an earlier 3-1 loss to the Gators last month in Division I, District 4 play.

East Ascension senior setter Londyn Brown had a team high 30 assists and 13 digs. Other senior contributions came from Truli Joseph (25 kills, 9 digs), Daisha Mosley (14 kills, 7 digs, 5 aces) and Abby LeBourgeois (12 digs, 1 ace, 1 assist).

St. Amant (10-9, 3-2) was led by Gracie Duplechein with 14 assists, 13 kills and 7 digs. Aubrey Dwane added 13 digs and10 kills while defender Maggie Diez had 18 digs. Olivia Rome finished with 19 assists, 5 digs and 2 aces.

East Ascension trailed in both the third and fourth sets but battled back to take both sets and pick up the important district match.

St. Amant had won five straight against their parish rivals and it’s only the second win over St. Amant since Jamie Gilmore has been head coach at EA.

With their win over Dutchtown in five sets last Thursday, the Spartans defeated both defending district co-champions in a six-day span.
