North Holton KS,

In a Northeast Kansas League volleyball triangular at Jackson Heights, Maur Hill Mount Academy and ACCHS travel west on Tuesday night. Maur Hill would sweep the night with victories over Jackson Heights and ACCHS in straight sets, while Jackson Heights split on the night falling to MHMA in straight sets while defeating ACCHS in straight sets. Finally ACCHS was unable to pick up a set win on the night as they fell in straight sets to both Jackson Heights and Maur Hill.



In the first set, the Cobras and Ravens alternated points on the first eight points before Maur Hill found a groove with Senior outside hitter Madison Folsom. Folsom led the Ravens on a 9-0 scoring run to stretch the lead to 13-4 and never look back as they cruised to a 25-13 victory. In set number two the Ravens jumped out early leading 8-4, 11-7 and 16-9 before the Cobras found some life with Senior middle hitter Sarah Marshall, rattling off four consecutive points to pull back within 16-13. The Cobras would continue their final push coming all the way back within one point to trail 20-19. After a timeout from Ravens coach Sara Noll, Maur Hill found a groove once again led by Folsom and phenomenal play from their setter Senior Malia Dulac as the Ravens closed out the Cobras ending the match on a 5-1 run to win 25-19.



In the first set, the Tigers jumped out early to lead 3-0 before the Ravens would rattle off three consecutive points of their own. These two teams would be tied at three, seven, nine, eleven before the Tigers reclaimed the lead, led by Sophomore Addison Schletzbaum scoring four straight to lead 15-11. Maur Hill would take a timeout and respond quickly as Junior Sydney Snowden stepped up in a big way to end the set on a 14-2 scoring run to win 25-17. In set number two the Ravens continued the same high level of play as the ended set one with, jumping out early 9-2, extending that lead to 18-7 before ending a dominant night with the win in set two 25-11. MHMA saw high energy from Snowden, Folsom and Dulac as the trio accounted for over 60% of the Ravens points on the night.

Jackson Heights - 2


In the first set it was anticipated as a close match as both teams had their struggles against Maur Hill, and neither team wanted to end their night without a win. In the early part of the match, similar to set one between MHMA and ACCHS, the set was tied at four, eight and nine before Jackson Heights found their way with Marshall, Junior McKenzie McMahon and Sophomore Kanyon Olberding at the net. Dominating the second half of the set with a 16-6 scoring run to close it out for the Cobra victory of 25-15. In the second set Jackson Heights jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead, and extended it out to a 16-5 advantage before ACCHS began their biggest push of the night. The Tigers would use aggressive net play from Schletzbaum and Sophomore Emili Postma with scrappy play from Sophomore Libero Natalie Nitz to bring the ACCHS all the way back to tie the set at 22-22. The Cobras would use a kill from Sophomore Kaylee Thompson to reclaim the lead at 23-22 where Marshall would take the reigns and serve it out for the Cobras to win 25-22.
