Chargers Split at CAM Volleyball Tourney


Following an emotional defeat to rival Panorama on Thursday, the ACGC volleyball team traveled to Anita today for the CAM Invitational Tournament and came away with a 2-2 record on the day.

The Chargers opened the day with two consecutive wins over teams from the Rolling Valley Conference. Those wins included a 21-14 and 21-19 win over Ar-We-Va and a 21-11 and 21-10 victory over Paton-Churdan.

In the shortened matches with Ar-We-Va and P-C, the numbers aren't as high as in a non-tournament match. Against Ar-We-Va, Chloe Largent led with 12 kills; Audrey Stowe had all of the 20 assists; "G" Hoover led in digs with 9; Olivia Laabs went 8 for 8 in serving.

In the match with Paton-Churdan, Savana Fuller had a monster match at the net, as she came up with a total of 8 blocks. Largent led in kills with 7; Stowe had 14 assists; Hoover and Laabs each netted 5 digs; and Jadeyn Carrick went 13 of 13 in serving.

In the third round the Chargers faced Underwood of the Western Iowa Conference, the team that edged out ACGC in its own tournament three weeks ago. Unfortunately for the Chargers, the result was the same, with Eagles sweeping 21-13 and 21-15. Largent went .500 in kill efficiency, as she had 8 kills in 16 attack attempts. Stowe had 14 assists, while Largent and Laabs each had 7 digs. Fuller had 3 blocks and Largent was 8 for 8 in serving.

In the battle for third place ACGC faced host CAM, and dropped a 2-1 match to the Cougars. After CAM took the first set, 25-23, the Chargers bounced back to take set two 25-16, before falling in the finale, 15-13. No statistics were available for this match.

The 2-2 record on the day gives the Chargers a 17-9 record on the season, with a 5-3 mark in the WCAC. The team will wrap up the regular season this coming week, with conference matches at Ogden on Tuesday and at Pleasantville on Thursday. The Ogden event is a triangular that also includes Greene County.
