CB South volleyball dropped CB West, 3-1 (25-20, 21-25, 25-23, 25-21), on Friday.

I am so proud of them. Lizzie and Kelly were absolutely phenomenal for us tonight and I cannot tell you how important they are to our success. They spread the ball around so perfectly tonight and got all of our hitters involved. I think each hitter had roughly the same amount of kills tonight. It was a total team effort. Isabel Miller had a stunning night from the service line and her play at the net made her a force tonight. I am so proud of her. I am so proud of all our girls. West is a really good team and we battled in every set tonight. Each set had about 10 lead changes in it and it made for an intense match. They really make you pay if you give them a free ball. Our defense was relentless tonight and the spectacular play from Lindsay, Alyssa and Maddie (Mauri) were what made the difference for us. Simply the best they’ve played all season long. We have a tough and emotional schedule next week, so it was really nice to cap off this week with a huge win. I cannot tell you enough just how proud I am of all girls tonight. … They dug deep and battled to beat an interdistrict rival tonight. They earned this win.”

CR North nudges Titans

CB South volleyball fell to CR North, 3-1, on Monday. Stats for the Titans: Kelly Danyluk, 22 assists, 16 digs; Alyssa Dallmer, 12 kills, 10 digs; Julia Dennis, seven kills, three blocks; Allie Burke, four kills, nine blocks; and McKenna Clow, 17 digs. “Another tough loss for us tonight,” head coach Kurt Godfrey said. “Rock North is an incredibly talented team and it’s tough to get them out of system. Rock’s outside, Maddy (Moore), is so good and she was on her game tonight. She is a heck of an athlete. We played really well and I am very proud of the way the girls battled back in games one and two, even though we lost. We were down 16-22 in each set and came back just a little too late. Allie and Julia had a great night in the middle for us and they blocked really well. McKenna and Lindsay both shared the libero spot and each played really smart, tough defense for us. Alyssa and Kelly, our captains, were so tough for us tonight and left everything out there. They always seem to be the ones who shine for us in clutch moments. We didn’t get the win tonight, but I am proud of the way the girls played. We’ll get back to work tomorrow in practice and continue to push for a playoff spot. I know we all want the chance to prove we belong there.”

Titans win another five-setter

Two days after nipping CB East in five sets, CB South volleyball went five to eclipse William Tennent, 3-2 (18-25, 20-25, 25-20, 25-19, 15-10), on Wednesday. Stats for the Titans: Maddy Morrow, three aces, 10 kills, five digs; Isabel Miller, 14 service points, five kills, five digs; Julia Dennis, 10 kills, three blocks; Kelly Danyluk, six aces, 26 assists, 16 digs; Alyssa Dallmer, eight kills, nine digs; and McKenna Clow, two assists, 11 digs. “Tonight, we dug deep and won another five-set match,” head coach Kurt Godfrey said. “Being down 0-2 and coming back to win, 3-2, really shows the grit and determination of this team. Coming off of a big win Monday night over CB East, I think it took us a little while to settle into a rhythm tonight. Tennent is a good team and Brian had them fired up tonight. Steph is a heck of a libero for them and it made it tough for us to get kills tonight. Julia Dennis has been a force at the net in the last few matches and I am so proud of her. It’s really nice to see it all coming together for her in her senior year. I think she and Kelly have really been on the same page lately and it’s helped our offense tremendously. Alyssa and Isabel were really great for us tonight, too. … Alyssa at the net and Isabel had a monster night for us at the service line. She had 14 points for us back there. Hopefully, this momentum carries into the end of this week and rolls into next week. We’ll go back to work tomorrow in practice, fix a few things we need to work on and be ready for the next big challenge that comes our way.”
