Lady Devils whip Manchester in straight sets

A highly-anticipated match up between two teams expected to finish toward the top of the conference in volleyball turned out to be nothing short of a rout on Tuesday evening.

The Lady Devils of North Adams made quick work of the Manchester Greyhounds, taking the match in three sets, 25-15, 25-12 and 25-16.

North Adams Head Coach Katie Ragan said her team was ready to play for their match up with Manchester.

“I think we were highly motivated to win the game,” Ragan said. “We had heard that Manchester would be our toughest competition in the league and winning the league is one of our goals.”

Sophomore Charlee Louden made her presence known on the court blasting high-powered shots at the at-times hapless Manchester defense, leading the team with 14 kills to go along with two serving aces.

“Charlee is doing an outstanding job in the front row,” Ragan said. “She jumps really well. Last night she was jumping a little higher than normal and was really able to hit down on the ball. She said she was feeling it.”

When Manchester was able to return an attack or serve, the Greyhounds struggled to run their offense smoothly enough to set up a spike, often times simply sending the ball over, making easy work for the North Adams defense. That luxury on the defense easily transferred to the North Adams offense, which looked like a well-oiled machine.

“Our defense was really good last night,” Ragan said. “Our libero, Maddie Toole, does a really good job of controlling the digs, so we can get our offense going. It is a big benefit when our setter can run the offense from in front of the 10 foot line.”

Sophomore Avery Harper joined in on the North Adams attack with 11 kills of her own while the team as a whole avoided serving errors especially well, avoiding errors over 90 percent of the time.

North Adams also took care of Batavia on the road Wednesday night in straight sets as well pushing their overall record to 6-0.
