Girls Volleyball: Generals Cruise
Hamilton-Wenham has won seven straight matches to start the season, dropping just a single game along the way. On Wednesday evening the Generals defeated North Reading 3-0.
Leading the way was senior captain and middle hitter Cecily Szady, who served at 100% with 2 aces, and also contributed 3 blocks at the net. Fellow captain Lauren Flynn, an outside hitter, contributed with 13 kills and the 13 digs. Jaiden Hartley-Ward (setter) and Grace Lapain (libero) each had 9 digs, and senior Katie Hankin passed well.
The Generals next test will be a tough one, as they will host currently undefeated Lynnfield (7-0) on Monday afternoon. North Reading (4-3) plays at Medford on Friday.
Girls Volleyball: Tigers Bounce Back
After falling to Hamilton-Wenham on Monday, Ipswich coach Kerri O'Connor was happy to see her team rebound with a solid performance against Newburyport. "We saw much improvement tonight on energy and court awareness. We worked together as a team and played for one another which is always our goal," said O'Connor.
The Tigers service game was strong, recording 20 aces overall and consistent service runs from Haley O’Connor, Ava Warren, Lauren Kennedy, Mikayla Keorber, and Meghan O’Connor. Talia Kaplanian played an aggressive defense in the back row for Ipswich.
Ipswich (3-3) will look to make it two in a row on Friday as they host Winthrop in a non-league match. Newburyport (0-7), in just its first year as a varsity program, will welcome Triton on Monday.
Girls Volleyball: Generals Remain Unbeaten
Hamilton-Wenham improved to 6-0 on the season, defeating Ipswich in straight sets at home on Monday. The loss drops the Tigers to 2-3.
The Generals got strong games from middle hitters Cecily Szady and Rose Wosepka, each coming up with two big blocks, and Wosepka adding three kills. Katie Hankin was perfect from the service line in 17 attempts, including three aces. Senior setter Jaiden Hartley-Ward had 20 assists.
Ipswich coach Kerri O'Connor felt her team suffered from low energy on the court, which led to too many errors. Emily Davidson played well at the net and was an accurate passer. Meghan O’Connor had many strong well placed hits. Ava Huntley stepped up in the middle with good communication and aggressive play and Grace Quinn passed well throughout.
H-W travels to North Reading on Wednesday, while Ipswich will host Newburyport.
