Lady Dragon spikers pay back Petaluma

Playing with pride, purpose and a chip on their shoulders from being handed their only loss in their final Sonoma County League and regular-season match, the three-time, SCL-champion Sonoma Valley High School varsity volleyball girls avenged their lone league defeat to Petaluma in dominating fashion.

After sweeping visiting fourth-seed Analy in three sets to open the annual postseason SCL Tournament last Tuesday, the top-seed Lady Dragons got the matchup they wanted in Thursday’s tourney final at Pfeiffer Gym and pummeled second-seed Petaluma, which beat third-seed Healdsburg in its opener, by a 25-9 first-set margin.

Sonoma followed with a convincing 25-14 second-set win before edging the rallying Trojan girls by a 25-22 third-set score to capture their third straight SCL Tourney title.

Comprising Sonoma’s three-time SCL regular-season and tournament-champion varsity volleyball girls – directed by head coach Chelsea Scott and assistant coaches Michele Foster and Heidi Boatright – are seniors Kaitlyn Boldt, Kayten Mak, Gianna Monterosso and Janeth Silva; juniors Mackenzie Albrecht, Anastasia Claros, Hannah Herrick, Cheyenne McCambridge, Ciara Smith and Delaney Swanson; sophomores Emma Stanfield, Carlie Vollert and Sami Von Gober; and freshmen Jenna Mak and Kiara Miles.

Leading the Lady Dragons past Petaluma were Albrecht’s 32 assists, nine digs and two blocks; Jenna Mak’s 21 digs; Swanson’s 20 kills, 10 digs and two blocks; Herrick  nine digs and three blocks; Miles’ eight kills and seven digs; Smith’s six kills and three blocks; and Silva’s four digs, three kills and two blocks.
