Continuing their romp through the Sonoma County League regular season, the two-time defending champion Sonoma Valley High School varsity volleyball girls posted their third straight three-set sweep of an SCL opponent last Thursday in Pfeiffer Gym.
Getting off to another quick start, the Lady Dragons snared the first-set 25-9, before withstanding visiting Healdsburg’s second- and third-set spurts to register 25-22 and 25-20 wins, respectively, for the match victory.
Leading Sonoma were senior Gianna Monterosso’s 14 assists and one serving ace; seniors Kayten Mak’s and Kaitlyn Boldt’s 13 digs each; junior Mackenzie Albrecht’s nine assists and six digs; junior Ciara Smith’s nine kills and two solo blocks; junior Delaney Swanson’s seven kills and one solo block; freshman Kiara Miles’ four kills; and sophomore Sami Von Gober’s three kills.
The Lady Dragon spikers, who improved their overall record to 14-4 and their SCL mark to 3-0, play Piner in Santa Rosa tonight, then host Elsie Allen this Thursday, Oct. 3, in Pfeiffer Gym, with the junior varsity starting at 5, followed by the varsity match at 6:30 p.m.
After Thursday, Sonoma will play league road matches at Petaluma on Tuesday, Oct. 8, and, following a bye, at El Molino on Tuesday, Oct. 15, before returning home to host SCL rival Analy on Thursday, Oct. 17, in Pfeiffer Gym.
Sonoma’s golfing girls got their top player, senior Jacquie Peterson, back after a short illness, but a strong Analy team was still too much to handle and they ended up dropping a 277-364 SCL decision last Thursday at the Sonoma Golf Club course.
Pacing the Lady Dragons were Peterson’s nine-hole round of 62, sophomore Callie Hogan’s 68, sophomore Lucy Houghton’s 69, junior Paige Kneff’s 75, and sophomore Isabel Garon’s 80.
The Sonoma girl golfers host SCL rival Healdsburg at 3:30 p.m. today at SGC, before traveling to Santa Rosa to face league foe Piner this Thursday, Oct. 3.
Sonoma’s tennis girls are coming off a bye and will play at SCL rival El Molino today before hosting league foe Piner at 3:30 p.m. this Thursday, Oct. 3, on the high school courts.
