North Adams rolls to second ‘W’

The North Adams Lady Devils volleyball squad started right where they left off in their season opening win when they beat Portsmouth Notre Dame in their second match of the season, three sets to one.

In their first road test of the year, the Lady Devils took the first set 25-21 before falling in the second set 25-17. But from there on it was fairly smooth sailing for the green and white as they won sets three and four 25-11 and 25-18 respectively, bringing their record to 2-0.

“We played a good team tonight with all seven girls working together,” North Adams Head Coach Katie Ragan said. “I was very happy with our defense. Notre Dame is a good team and I’m glad we were able to win on the road.”

Junior Madison Jenkins was unstoppable on the evening racking up 19 kills while next on the team was sophomore Charlee Louden with 10. Jenkins also led the team with five total blocks in route to the win.

Senior Allyson Campton was a serving machine, serving 19 times with zero serving errors in part forcing Notre Dame into 12 serving receiving errors on the evening.

Across the board, statistics were very similar except in the attacking area where the Lady Devils were supreme.

North Adams had 37 more attacks than the Titans as well as 11 fewer attacking errors. North Adams also held an advantage in the hitting percentage category, .175 to .040 for Notre Dame.
