Playing three times in a span of four days, the Cazenovia girls volleyball team sailed past all of the tests, improving its season mark to 10-2.
First, the Lakers swept Fayetteville-Manlius last Monday night at Buckley Gym. Lizzy Reed finished with eight kills and eight digs, while Amber Robinson earned six kills. Alexis Markowski mixed in five kills, four aces and three digs as Chelsea Lauria picked up 16 assists. Hannah Koennecke gained five aces, four digs and three kills.
The Lakers then went to Oswego Wednesday night and put together a four-game victory over the Buccaneers.
Cazenovia controlled the opening game 25-13, only to see Oswego rebound and earn a 25-20 victory in the second game. The Lakers went back in front by taking the third game 25-16, then endured a tense fourth game, nearly being sent to the wire before pulling out that game 26-24 and closing out the match.
Back home Thursday night to face Nottingham, the Lakers did not have to spend too much time on the Buckley Gym court in a 25-13, 25-12, 25-9 sweep of the Bulldogs.
Lauria had 13 assists, adding three aces, while Markowski and Madison Gabor each finished with six kills. Gabor also had five aces and four digs. Robinson finished with eight assists as Reed produced four kills. Miyu Uchida chimed in with three kills.
Cazenovia is not home again until Oct. 22, when it faces Auburn in the lead-up to its regular-season finale with Sknaeateles. Before that, the Lakers get three straight road matches, including trips this week to Institute of Technology Central and Cicero-North Syracuse.
