Lakeview def. York 25-11, 25-20, 25-15: The Lady Vikes controlled the match at the serving line, piling up 14 aces without a single error. Four different members tied for the team lead with five kills.
No. 9 Lakeview improved to 9-1.
"We played pretty well. Frankly, I was surprised to have gotten the sweep. That's not what I would have anticipated tonight," coach K.C. Belitz said. "We were expecting it to be at least four if not five. They've played two quality opponents, and both of those went five.
"We were preparing the team for that to happen. To the girls credit, we didn't let that happen."
Wayne def. Scotus 21-25, 25-15, 26-24, 25-23: Amber Buhman again led Scotus offensively, but, according to coach Janet Tooley, didn't have enough opportunities from her setters the rest of the way. Tooley was also disappointed in the way her team responded to a big-match, road atmosphere.
No. 4 Scotus dropped to 5-1.
"Amber had 17 kills. She hit. 428. That was part of our problem tonight - we just didn't get her the ball tonight," Tooley said. "We went to her in that first set, then we didn't get her the ball enough. It was that simple."
Cross County def. BDS 25-22, 26-24, 25-19: The Cougars controlled the action with 10 aces and took advantage of BDS mistakes.
"It did seem that BDS made some uncharacteristic errors, and we did capitalize on those for sure," coach Autumn Capler said. "We knew we had to keep our side clean in order to play with them, and when we did make errors, we were quick to move on to the next play, which is something we have talked about and worked a lot on in my two years of coaching."
Tekamah-Herman def. Twin River 25-15, 25-18: Logan View/Scribner-Snyder def. Twin River 25-20, 27-25: "We did not play our best games tonight. We committed to many unforced errors which lead to to many points given up," coach Julie Strain said. "We need to work on building our confidence and making sure we are playing up to our potential.
"We have been playing very conservative and look like we are afraid to make mistakes. Hopefully, as the season goes on, we can boost our confidence and start playing up to our potential."
