Archbold 8th Grade Volleyball
The Streaks defeated Delta 25- 11, 25-20, Tuesday, Oct. 16 in the NWOAL tournament, moving the team into the championship match with Evergreen, Thursday, Oct. 18.
The girls lost to Evergreen 26-24, 13-25, 10-25 in a hard-fought match.
“The girls hit the ball harder than they have all season, but it seemed like Evergreen always had a player there to dig it up,” said Dina Gladieux, Archbold coach. “We could not get anything to fall.”
Peyton Dickman had two ace serves. Alyssa Ziegler and Sydney Baynes each had one.
“As I said earlier, we hit the ball well but very few went all the way to the floor, so our kill numbers are low,” said Gladieux.
Sydney Baynes, Delanie Driver, and Morgan Miller each had one kill. Ziegler had two. The Streaks ended with a 16-5 record and were the NWOAL runners-up.
“They are a great group of young athletes, and I look forward to seeing what they will do when they get to high school,” said Gladieux.
