In a key Sonoma County League road match at the midway point of the 12-match SCL regular season schedule the two-time defending champion Sonoma Valley High School varsity volleyball girls turned in another strong team effort in sweeping longtime rival Petaluma and remaining unbeaten at 6-0 in league play.

With junior setter Mackenzie Albrecht  racking up assists, sisters senior Kayten Mak and freshman Jenna Mak uniting for 28 digs, and junior Delaney Swanson and frosh Kiara Miles combining for 22 kills, the visiting Lady Dragons toppled Petaluma in three close sets by 25-20, 25-23, 25-22 scores for the big SCL triumph.

Leading Sonoma past the Trojan girls were Albrecht’s 32 assists and five digs; Jenna Mak’s 17 digs; Miles’ 12 kills and two serving aces; Kayten Mak’s 11 digs and two aces; Swanson’s 10 kills; junior Hannah Herrick’s eight digs and five kills; junior Ciara Smith’s six kills; and senior Kaitlyn Boldt’s three digs and one ace.

The Lady Dragons improved their overall record to 17-4 with the win and, after yesterday’s bye, will face longtime league foe El Molino in Forestville this Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Sonoma’s spikers then return home to host second-place Analy in another key SCL match at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17, in Pfeiffer Gym, preceded by the freshmen starting at 4, and the junior varsity playing at 5.
