Two close games went Washington’s way in a volleyball victory Thursday at Pacific High School.

The Lady Jays (4-4-1) pulled away in both games to register a 25-22, 25-20 victory over the Lady Indians.

“I thought we had a very good night overall. We picked up our defensive effort,” said Washington Head Coach Kym Blankenship. “I was impressed with Pacific being able to defend the ball like they did. They kept the ball going a lot.”

Pacific (2-1) had an 11-2 lead in the second game, but was outscored 23-9 the rest of the way.

“It was a good, competitive match. We fought hard all the way and never let up,” said Pacific Head Coach Janel Brown. “Over our last couple of games, there have been times where we seem to hit a flat spell, and that’s what happened after opening a lead in the second game.”

The first game was tied 20-20 before the Lady Jays ended it with a 5-2 run.

A kill by Washington’s Jenna Barnhart ended the first game.

In the second game, Pacific jumped to leads of 8-0 and 11-2.

The Lady Jays caught Pacific, 16-16, and grabbed a 17-16 lead on consecutive service aces by Sarah Borgerding.

“It was a tough first game. We definitely let up in the second game. I’m not sure what happened. I think everyone wanted to share having an error. We got it out of our system and came back really well,” Blankenship said. “In games we’ve been down against teams that we should compete with, we tend to come back. It’s just not a good habit to get in to.”

Lady Jays had the advantage at the net.

“Washington did a good job blocking. We don’t have anyone taller than 5-8, so we didn’t get many touches on their attacks,” Brown said. “We were in the right spots, but didn’t get enough touches on them.”

Blankenship and Brown both said that Washington libero Erica Diener was a big difference in the match. She finished with 23 digs.

“Erica had a phenomenal defensive night,” Blankenship said. “She stayed deep and really read a lot of good hits.”

Jenna Barnhart registered six kills. Olivia Strode and Amanda Vollmer both had four kills. Vollmer added two assist blocks.

Emily Voss collected 10 assists. Paige Carpenter added eight assists. Kelly Gauzy recorded nine digs.

“Jenna is our go-to player right now. Olivia is playing all the way around and doing a really nice job,” Blankenship said. “Our middles weren’t quite as strong as they normally are, but they’ll be fine. This is Sarah Borgerding’s second game back and she did a nice job serving and had some good swings.”

Kate Cookson paced Pacific with seven kills and six digs.

Ashley Hill collected 18 digs and five kills.

Gabriella Sauvage had 17 assists and six digs. Ellen Rogers added eight digs and three kills. Cailley Bausch had five digs. Charla Jackson had four digs. Brigid Toney finished with two blocks.

Washington-FZS

Washington improved to 2-0 in the GAC Central with a home win Tuesday over Ft. Zumwalt South, 25-20, 25-18.

“We were a little flat. It wasn’t our best game. We didn’t play as well as we did against Pacific,” Blankenship said. “It was a conference win, which is important. It’s nice to win our first two conference matches.”

Diener collected 11 digs in the match. Barnhart added six digs.

Strode smashed four kills while Vollmer added three kills.

Carpenter finished with 11 assists while Voss had three assists.

Pacific-Summit

Pacific won Tuesday at home over Rockwood Summit, 25-17, 20-25, 25-22.

“It was a good win. We played very well as a team. Our defense and serve receive was really on,” Brown said. “They had one really strong hitter who put the ball down. We were able to get a few touches on the ball, but when we didn’t, our defense was there to back us up.”

Cookson led the Lady Indians with 11 kills and four service aces.

“Kate was our strongest hitter at the net,” Brown said. “She dominated their line shot.”  

Hill added five kills and one block assist. Sauvage collected 16 assists.

Rogers finished with two kills and one block assist. Madyson Bastean had three kills. Toney had one kill.
