In its only action last week, the Cicero-North Syracuse girls volleyball team dropped a third set to Utica Proctor, but still took out the Raiders 25-23, 25-29, 24-26, 25-15 to remain undefeated.
Winning that opener proved important for the Northstars, for it gave them a cushion once the sweep wasn’t finished off. Adrianna Patzer had seven kills, with Cara Gannett adding five kills, three aces, three blocks and three digs.
Emily Becker had four aces and six digs as Lindsey Silfer managed 15 assists, four kills and four aces. Amy VanHoven put up six assists, plus two kills and two aces.
Liverpool’s girls team got humbled at home by Skaneateles 25-15, 25-8, 25-19 last Monday night. In defeat, Jenna Bush had four assists and Dorothy Rosekrans got seven kills, with Meghan Stonebarger adding 17 assists. Stephanie Mumpton put up four kills and four digs and Rachel Ruggaber finished with seven digs.
It proved different in Wednesday’s match against Fayetteville-Manlius. After winning the first set 25-20, the Warriors got dumped by the Hornets 25-12 in the second set, but won all the crucial points in the next two sets to prevail by margins of 25-23 and 25-21.
By the time it was done, Rosekrans had 11 kills and four digs, with Emily Flohr adding seven kills. Rowell did it all, earning 14 assists, six kills, six digs and two blocks, while Stonebarger had 18 assists. Cassi McCrum had six kills and Mumpton contributed five kills.

Rosekrans finished with 12 kills and five digs, while Stonebarger earned nine assists. Rowell had five assists, four kills and four digs, with Mumpton gaining four kills and Alexis Hasper adding three kills. Ruggaber added six digs.
