Another gold ball at NAHS

The North Adams volleyball team concluded a dominant regular season with another straight-set win over Fayetteville Perry to push their record to 19-3 overall.

To go along with that record, the Lady Devils picked up their third gold ball in a row for an undefeated record in Southern Hills Athletic Conference play. North Adams has now won 39 straight conference matches and this season only dropped one set in conference play.

Sophomore Charlee Louden averaged four kills per set as she led the team in attacking while many of the rest of the Lady Devils got in on the action as well. Sophomore Avery Harper had seven kills while her classmate Abby Campton tallied up six of her own. Junior Madison Jenkins racked up five as well.

All three sets were won fairly comfortably as the sets were won with scores of 25-10, 25-16 and 25-14.

Serving was also a strong point for the Lady Devils as the team scored a 95.9 percent serving percentage. Three members of the team had a serving efficiency of 100 percent and only three serving errors were made by the team in total on the evening.

Junior Maddie Toole did her job along the back line as she dug 12 spikes from the Fayetteville attack while also receiving 15 serves. Campton and Jenkins dug eight and six attacks respectively for North Adams.

The next test for North Adams will come on Oct. 24 at 4 p.m. when the Lady Devils will play the West Union Lady Dragons at home in a sectional final match up. If North Adams is victorious, this will be their second sectional title in as many years. The winner of that contest will likely take on Westfall in a district semi-final at Waverly High School on Oct. 27.
