After beating American Canyon 3-0 on Tuesday, the Sonoma Valley High Lady Dragon spikers dropped a 3-0 decision to Vintage on Wednesday evening.

Wednesday’s game was also Senior Night as it was Sonoma’s final home match of the season.

The first two games against Vintage were real close with the Crushers winning 29-27, 26-24 and 25-16.

Giana Bruton led the Lady Dragons with eight kills while Gabby Knudson had six. Knudson led the team with four serving aces. And Marissa White had 17 digs while Paulina Martindale had 11.

“It was a tough fought battle and we just feel short,” said Lady Dragon Coach Rand Rognlien. “We had an excellent night serving and playing defense”

“It was an emotional night being Senior Night, and the girls left everything on the court. They can hold their heads high,” he added.

Prior to the game, the Lady Dragons honored Paulina Martindale, Maya Bigirimana, Gracie Vollert, Olivia Herrick, Ava Rognlien, Gabby Knudson and Isabela Albano.

Despite being shorthanded because of some injuries, Sonoma had better luck on Tuesday stopping American Canyon 25-18, 27-25 and 25-20.

Gracie Vollert led the Lady Dragons with eight kills while Alondra Martinez and Bruton each had six. Ava Rognlien and Angelina Carbine each had two service aces for the winners.

“Despite being down two of our starters to injury, the entire team contributed to a solid win,” the coach said.

The split gives the Lady Dragons an 11-12 overall record and 3-6 in league play.

Sonoma will be on the road next week, with games at Casa Grande in Tuesday and at Napa on Wednesday. Sonoma closes out the regular season on Oct. 18 at Petaluma.
