Before hitting the Sonoma County League road for the end of the first, and the start of the second half of the 12-game schedule, the three-time defending champion Sonoma Valley High School varsity volleyball girls cruised to their fifth straight SCL match to remain unbeaten and alone in first place.
Last Thursday night in Pfeiffer Gym, the Lady Dragons soared out of the gate and roared past Piner for a 25-3 first-set victory, which was followed by 25-6 second-set rout.
In the third set, the Sonoma girls got more resistance from the visiting Prospectors, but not near enough to stop them from coasting to a 25-13 win and the 3-0 match triumph.
The Lady Dragons were led by senior Mackenzie Albrecht’s 20 assists and two blocks; senior Delaney Swanson’s 14 kills, seven digs and five serving aces; sophomore Jenna Mak’s 13 digs and one ace; junior Sami Von Gober’s 10 digs and seven aces; junior Courtney Cogbill’s 10 assists and three digs; senior Hannah Herrick’s four kills and four digs; sophomore Kiara Miles’ four digs, three kills, two aces and one dig; senior Cheyene McCambridge’s four digs and three aces; and senior Ciara Smith’s three kills.
Sonoma’s spikers wrap up the SCL first half tonight against Elsie Allen in Santa Rosa, before playing a rematch at Petaluma on Thursday, Oct. 9, which kicks off the final stretch of six matches.
