The Lowry High School volleyball continued its winnings ways last week with two more road trips to the Reno/Sparks area and finally a home match after spending nearly the first month of action on the road.
Lowry traveled to Reno on Tuesday, Sept. 6, and knocked off Wooster in four sets to avenge a loss from last year.
The Lady Bucks raced out to a 25-15 win in the first set but dropped the second set 25-21.
Lowry regrouped and rallied for the win, taking the last two sets 25-22 and 25-10.
Lowry was right back on the road on the following day on Wednesday, Sept. 7, to play Sparks.
The Lady Bucks cruised the 25-12, 25-10 and 25-16 victory over the Railroaders.
Lowry made its home debut this past Saturday and notched a 25-16, 25-15, 25-11 win over Hug to improve to 11-4 overall and 4-0 against the Northern 3A West.
The Lady Bucks got off to a slow start, as the Hawks jumped out to a 10-6 lead in the opening set.
Lowry came back to tie the set at 11 on a kill by Kailey Franklin and the Lady Bucks extended the advantage to 17-11 with an 8-0 run off a tip by Savannah Stoker, a kill by Franklin and an ace by Belen Barocio. Stoker added two kills and Franklin had an ace to end the set.
The Lady Bucks scored the first six points of the second set off a kill by Stoker and an ace by Barocio.
Hug got its first point off a missed serve by Lowry, but the score quickly increased to 11-2, forcing the Hawks to take a time out.
The lead grew to 15-3 after a bump by Alexis Galarza fell in the open Hug side of the floor and Emma Gray had a tip that went between the Hug defense.
The Hawks closed within 19-9 in the second set, only to see Lowry’s Marquette Cassinelli and Cambria Tissue answer with kills to win the set.
Barocio had two aces as Lowry quickly built a 4-0 advantage in the third set and Franklin added a kill and ace to push the lead to 7-1.
Hug made one last run to close the gap to 13-7m but Franklin, Stoker and Tisue came back with kills to stretch the lead back to 20-9. The Lady Bucks ended the match with a kill from Galarza.
Lowry closes out Northern 3A West crossover play this weekend at home against South Tahoe on Friday at 6 p.m. and North Valleys on Saturday at noon.
