BUTTE -- Kiahna Steiner crushed 13 kills to help Billings Senior sweep Butte in Eastern AA volleyball Saturday afternoon.

The Broncs ran their record to 14-0 with a 25-14, 25-9, 25-13 sweep.

Senior hosts Billings West this Tuesday.

The Broncs put down 40 kills in the three sets against the Bulldogs. Andrea Bowers added eight and Kierney Findon six. Steiner also led the team in blocks (four) and aces (4). Bowers added four of Senior's 13 aces.

"We loved our offensive output today. We went after it from the first kills,'' said Broncs' coach Jeff Carroll. "Kiahna had a great match and Bowers and Findon had outstanding matches. Any time you have kids getting the statistics you do, you have a great setter and Jace Henderson played extremely well distributing the ball."

Henderson finished with 30 assist. Along with six kills, Findon added three blocks and 14 digs, while Jessica Haley had 18 digs. Taylor Mims had three blocks at the net.

"We felt our kids were relatively focused,'' Carroll added. "This is a team that is playing pretty well right now."
