October 7th, 2010
Dominating sets 1 and 3 and coming back from a big deficit and making the key plays down the stretch, the Golden Lion Volleyball squad defeated Riverwood 3 sets to love today. The victory was the teams 3rd straight area championship and set them up to host games for at least the first two rounds of the state tournament. Grace McGoldrick did an outstanding job of distributing the ball with 27 assists and Emily Morrison (9 kills), Leah Hardeman (6 kills), & Kallen Arvidson (4 kills) kept the Raiders on their heels all match. Outstanding passing by Sam Hebda, Catherine Evelyn and Ella Anastasiades also helped to propel the Lions to victory. Catherine Evelyn also had the mojo working from the service line with 21 service attempts and 3 aces. Led by Chelsea Onuorah with three, the Lions had six different players pick up blocks in the match. The team's first state playoff match will be on Saturday, October 16th. The team will honor its seniors following the match. The opponent and time of the match are still to be determined by results of other area tournaments this weekend.
