Holding Serve at Home


Thu, Sep 26th, 2013
Posted in All Sports

It’s pretty rare that three of the county volleyball teams all played just home games during a given week. It’s probably even more rare that all would hold serve at home and rack up a pair of victories. That’s just what Fillmore Central, Chatfield, and Rushford-Peterson did (the week of Monday the 16th). R-P got things going. They hosted Houston in a non-conference match-up. A trio of Kendra Crawford aces (with the score 19-16 Trojans) helped R-P take sufficient enough lead in set one to claim it 25-18. R-P opened set two with 11 of the first 13 points, but the Hurricanes then had runs of 7-0 and 5-0 to tie things at 18. With it 23-23, R-P scored the final two points for the win and 2-0 lead. Houston took the big lead to begin set three (11-3). But a 6-0 Trojan run (Crawford again serving) knotted things at 18. R-P would narrowly pull it out from there for another 25-23 win (the 3-0 sweep). Sierra McNamer and Keela Brand led the Trojans offensively with 7 kills apiece. Brand added 7 digs. Crawford was big defensively (11 digs) and from the service line (13-14 with 5 aces). Abbey Loken was Houston’s best all-around player, leading the ‘Canes with 12 kills and 11 digs. Natalie King had 5 kills and 3 blocks. Valerie Hibbs came off the bench and had 17 assists (all in sets two and three).

On Tuesday, both Fillmore Central and Chatfield, the front-runners in the 3-Rivers conference, made quick work of their opponents. FC blasted Southland in straight sets 25-9, 25-4, 25-11, as the Rebels couldn’t make it to 25 points in three games. Five Falcons chalked up five or more kills led by the emerging 5’9” junior MH Leah Scheevel (10 kills) and the long-since emerged Taylor Case (10 kills). Tori Peterson (7 kills), Sammi Bakke (7 kills), and Morgan Malley (5 kills, 9 digs, 21 assists) also found open spaces in the Rebels defense. Back row players Tayah Barnes (5 digs, 2 aces 20-20 serving) and Larissa Armstrong (7 digs, 3 aces, 20-20 serving) made it a team effort. The Gophers weren’t quite so lights-out versus St. Charles, but they weren’t far behind either. Chatfield marched through the Saints 25-13, 25-15, and 25-12. Brook Irish, a 5’10” junior OH, brought the hammer 12 times. Kirsten Keefe was Ms. Versatility with 7 kills and 7 digs. The Salisbury sisters (Gabrielle/Sheridan) combined for 7 kills, 29 assists (24 by Gabrielle), 11 digs, 2 aces, 1.5 blocks, and connected on 27-28 serves. The Saints were in the ‘not top t .....
