Stars crush Chargers in 3

Dover — The Western Boone volleyball team had been waiting all year long for another deep postseason run after last year’s journey to the regional.

They looked well into postseason form Thursday night in the first round of the sectional, routing North Montgomery 3-0 (25-15, 25-12, 25-17).

“I thought the first two games we were really focused,” Western Boone head coach Laura Lawson said. “Then we had our infamous third game where we just get relaxed and we didn’t have the intensity that I wanted. But, we got a win in three, and that is what is important.”

After being tied 5-5 early in game one, the Stars scored nine of the next 11 points to grab a 14-7 lead. The lead grew to as much as 10 as Western Boone cruised to the 25-15 lead.

Game two was even more dominant as the Stars scored the first four points to the game. North Montgomery got as close as three at 10-7 and again at 11-8, but Western Boone used an 8-1 run to pull away.

“I thought our blocking was really good,” Lawson said. “We have been working a lot on it. We did a really good job of closing our block. And our hitting was really good. They could not dig Emily (Harrison) at all.”

Game three was the closest of the three.

While Western Boone never trailed in game three, the Stars lead was just 18-15 late in the game.

Western Boone closed the game on a 7-2 run, getting two kills and two blocks from Nicole Chance to close out the match.
