Earning one of its most exciting wins of the season, the Liverpool girls volleyball team knocked off West Genesee in five sets last Thursday night.
The Warriors, who caught the Wildcats coming off a loss to Baldwinsville two nights earlier, nearly had a sweep, winning the first two sets 25-21 and 25-20. But WG pulled out the third set 25-23 and got the fourth set, too, 25-21 to even up the match.
Finally, Liverpool put WG away 25-15 in the final set as Emily Flohr managed 21 kills, six aces and 10 digs. Sam Wolf added 10 kills, 12 digs and three aces, while Amelia Bartier (five kills), Julia Mumpton (four kills) and Ciara Duck (three kills) helped on the front line.
Meg Stonebarger managed 36 assists, to go with 13 digs, five kills, three blocks and two aces. Amanda Lauricella got 16 digs and Ivanna Grynyk had seven digs, with each of them also picking up a trio of aces.
Prior to that, Liverpool rolled to a 25-15, 25-15, 25-14 sweep over Corcoran, with Stonebarger again doing a bit of everything as she gained 21 assists, eight digs, five aces and three kills. Flohr led the Warriors’ front line, earning 11 kills, but each of the 12 Liverpool players that saw action earned at least one kill, including Wolf, who got five kills.
Cicero-North Syracuse had an impressive effort in last Tuesday’s match against Central Square, sweeping the Red Hawks 25-15, 25-10, 25-20.
Kelsey Hess finished with 11 assists, with Jess Doran close behind as she earned 10 assists, the pair getting four digs apiece. Tiffany Ryan amassed 25 digs as, up front, Kira Kullman had five kills, four aces and six digs, while Mallory Eymer had four kills. Samantha Roberts contributed 12 digs and Miriam Ghabarou added three kills.
