North Adams volleyball rack up two more wins

Since their sweep of Peebles on Oct. 8, the North Adams volleyball team is still hitting on all cylinders as they took down both Western Latham and Portsmouth at home within the past week.

With the two victories, both in straight sets, the Lady Devils now have a record of 18-3 before their senior night matchup against Fayetteville, which took place on Thursday, Oct. 15, after this edition of the People’s Defender went to print.

Sophomore Charlee Louden was once again central in the North Adams attack against Western, racking up 12 kills to lead all athletes, as opposed to just two attacking errors with six serving aces to go along. Junior Madison Jenkins also had a strong offensive performance for North Adams as she ended the evening with nine kills.

The spikes from the North Adams offense proved to be too much for Western as the Indians committed 18 dig errors on the evening as opposed to zero for North Adams despite tallying 14 more digs than Western in total.

North Adams was tested in the second set, but overall won fairly comfortably taking the sets 25-14, 25-22 and 25-11.

Portsmouth tried their luck against North Adams on Oct. 13 and came into the game with a strong 15-5 record, but like so much of the season for North Adams, a fourth set was not necessary for the Lady Devils to take down the Trojans as the home side won 25-19, 25-15 and 25-16.

This time Louden was joined offensively by fellow sophomore Avery Harper as the two combined for 25 of the team’s 38 kills on the evening.

Senior Allyson Campton was a staple in terms of serving as she sent out 17 serves, five of which were aces.

Dig errors could be argued once again as the key statistic that decided the contest as the Trojans were forced into 21 dig errors while once again the Lady Devils had not a blemish on that portion of the stat sheet. Junior Maddie Toole led North Adams with 18 digs while Campton and Louden had 15 and 13 digs respectively.

North Adams will take on another Portsmouth team in the first round of the postseason tournament, the Portsmouth West Senators, on Oct. 20 at home at 6 p.m.
