Charger Volleyball Team Extends Win Streak To FIVE!
The AC/GC volleyball team traveled to Audubon last night for a triangular versus Ar-We-Va and Audubon and came home with two wins to stretch its winning streak to five matches. The team has not lost a match since the first of the season versus Atlantic. The Chargers defeated Ar-We-Va in a hotly contested match 26-24 and 25-20, and topped the host Wheelers 25-17 and 25-15. “We started out slowly against Ar-We-Va with a lot of unforced errors which prevented us from getting any momentum,” coach Lindsey Moe said. “We were down 18-8 in the first set after we had used our last timeout, but the girls fought back to tie it up at 24 before we scored the last two points. We didn’t play our best, but I am proud of how the girls battled through to take the win.” Three Chargers had double figure attack attempts, with MaKayla Hoing at thirteen attacks, Jadeyn Carrick with eleven and Mady Smith with ten. Hoing led in kills with seven, followed by Smith with six and Carrick with five. Genevieve Hoover led the team in serving efficiency, as she was successful on 10-11attempts, followed by Mady Smith who was 7-8. Savana Fuller was tops in aces with four on 6-8 serving. Hoing and Olivia Laabs each contributed eight digs, while Chelsea Larsen led the team in the assist column with ten. The second match of the evening proved to be a stronger showing by the Chargers as they stopped Audubon, a 2016 state tournament qualifier, in straight sets 25-17 and 25-15. “We had a great night from the serving line against Audubon. The thirteen aces we recorded really gave us the momentum to finish the night with another win”, the Charger coach commented. Genevieve Hoover again led the team in serving with 15-16 successful serves, including four aces. Olivia Laabs followed with 11-12 on serves and Paige Caltrider was 6-6. Makayka Hoing topped the hitting as she was successful on 15 of 16 attacks and recorded eight kills. Caltrider chalked up seven assists, while Laabs and Hoing led the squad in digs with eight and six respectively. The wins gives the Chargers an overall record of 5-1 with a mark of 1-0 in conference play. Next action for the team will be the home opener when AC/GC entertains West Central Valley next Tuesday, Sept. 5. The freshman match will begin at 5 PM with JV and varsity matches to follow.
