After a fierce battle against Fernley, which the Lowry High School volleyball team won in three sets in Winnemucca, the Lady Bucks had to go on the road the next day and play in Fallon on Thursday, Sept. 14.
Lowry found it tough going at times, but escaped Fallon with a 23-25, 25-19, 31-29 and 25-16 win to improve to 3-0 in the Northern 3A.
After dropping the first set, the Lady Bucks rallied to win the second set and tie the match at one set apiece. The third set was the deciding of the night, as the teams went back-and-forth well past the regulation 25 points of a set. Each squad had their opportunities to win the set, with Lowry prevailing in the end.
Following the scare in the third set, Lowry rallied in the fourth set to secure the win and avoid the upset loss.
The Lady Bucks had 48 kills on the night, with three players in double figures. Brittany Jacaway led the squad with 13 kills and Sierra Maestrejuan and Ana Ochoa had 12 and 10, respectively.
Julianne Montero added seven kills and Kyllie Sappington five. Montero added a block, as did Brooke Hansen.
Jadyn Eastman had a team-high 39 assists to go with six digs and an ace. Sappington and Jenny Torres had three and two aces, respectively.
Sappington and Tailor West each had 10 digs, Alyssa Kuskie added eight and Torres six.
Lowry is currently the only undefeated team in the Northern 3A. The Lady Bucks will get tested once again this weekend with another road trip.
Lowry is in South Tahoe on Friday for a 6 p.m. start and in Dayton on Saturday for a noon match. Both South Tahoe and Dayton are 3-1 in the Northern 3A.
