In a rematch of defending Sonoma County League co-champions Tuesday night in Sebastopol, Sonoma Valley High School’s varsity volleyball girls swept past Analy by scores of 25-21, 25-22, 26-24 to remain in an SCL first-place tie with Petaluma as of presstime.
Leading the Lady Dragons were sophomore Anastasia Claros’ 26 digs, sophomore Delaney Swanson’s 19 kills, sophomore Ciara Smith’s four solo blocks, and sophomore Mackenzie Albrecht’s three serving aces.
The Sonoma spikers, who hosted SCL second-place tied Healdsburg last night – results not available at presstime – will compete in the Hoover High Tournament tomorrow, Saturday, Oct. 13, before traveling to Santa Rosa this Tuesday, Oct. 16, to face league foe Piner.
