North girls volleyball wins two of three

Williamsville North’s girls volleyball team recorded wins in two of three ECIC Division I road matches last week to improve its league record to 5-4.

The Lady Spartans beat West Seneca West, 25-9, 25-14, 25-13 Oct. 3 and Frontier 12-25, 25-23, 25-16, 25-13 Friday.

North coach Keith Hopkins said the team played consistently against West and never gave them an opportunity to get anything going.

Against West, Allie Macon tallied 10 kills, Maid Reed recorded eight kills and Abby Vincent handed out 15 assists.

After a slow start against Frontier, Hopkins said his team controlled the match.

Macon tallied nine kills, Vincent posted seven kills and Bri Brown added six kills.

North’s lone blemish was a 10-25, 17-25, 22-25 loss Thursday against Clarence.

“We did not come out with the intensity and focus that we had hoped,” Hopkins said. “We need to come out and play with more of a sense of urgency. This is a match that we need to learn from.”

North (9-7-2 overall) hosted Orchard Park Tuesday, but information about the match was unavailable before The Bee went to press. North lost the first meeting in five sets.

North hosts Lockport Thursday and competes in the North Tonawanda Tournament Saturday.

“We hope to continue to get better,” Hopkins said.
