Girls Junior Varsity Volleyball · Rangers hold off Madison

North Volleyball

North earned a hard-fought 3-1 Western Reserve Conference win at Madison on Tuesday.

The Rangers cruised to 25-16 and 25-18 victories in the first two sets but Madison extended the match with its 25-20 victory in the third set. North closed out the match with a 25-23 win in the fourth game.

“It was a solid night for us,” North coach Tamara Heller said. “We let up some in the third match, which was a good lesson for us. If you sit back, anyone is going to come in and take it from you, but we understood our task at hand and got the job done.”

Abby Carter and Julia Kerns tied for the team lead with 13 kills. Carter also added five blocks, four digs and three service aces and Kerns finished with three blocks, 12 digs and two aces.

Olivia Oostdyk contributed with 11 kills and six blocks and Tina Sekelsky finished with four kills, three blocks and two digs. Ann Cook led the Rangers with 18 digs and Alexis Breen posted a team-high 30 assists with five blocks and two kills. Kaitlyn Mastroianni pitched in with three kills, 13 digs and three aces and Dhvani Patel recorded 14 digs and a pair of aces.

The Rangers, who improved to 8-10 overall and 5-6 in the WRC, travel to Brush on Thursday.
