Prep Report: Red Knights trio overpowers Seahawks

September 23, 2011

The senior "big three" once again showed the way as the North Fort Myers Red Knights overpowered the Cape Coral Seahawks Thursday night 25-17, 25-11, 25-12 in District 5A-13 volleyball.

"We have great leadership with those three," Red Knights coach Jeremy Ridgeo said of hitters Jessica Wagner, Miranda Ashby and setter Susie McKeever. "And it's easy to play when you are up six, eight, 10 points."

Wagner and Ashby each delivered nine kills while McKeever contributed seven kills with 17 assists.

You could add a fourth to the "big three" as junior Heather Getman served up 10 of the Knights' 18 aces.

Twice Getman stepped to the service line and ran off at least 10 consecutive service points. Her first long stretch opened the second game and ended 11 points later, leaving the Seahawks facing a big deficit. She served 10 straight points at the beginning of the third game.

"We controlled the game with our serving, no question," said Ridgeo.

The Seahawks (3-6, 1-4 district) have been plagued all season with slow starts. Usually, they get it together by the second game and finish strong. Thursday night, they spotted North 10-point leads to start all three games and never got untracked.

"We were not very enthusiastic tonight for some reason," said Seahawks coach Lindsey Conley. "It's been a tough week."

The Seahawks made numerous unforced errors on both serve and volley receives. Still, after digging themselves into deep holes they managed to hang around and almost play North point-for-point.

The statistics are telling for the Seahawks, who got four kills from Kristi Maselter and four from Alysia Figueroa. They also had five and four blocks, respectively. Katie Habuda added three blocks. The Seahawks only served two aces the entire match.

The Seahawks and Red Knights (9-2, 5-0 district) both return to action Monday. The Seahawks play at Fort Myers while the Red Knights play at Dunbar.

Mariner 3, Dunbar 0: The Tritons came out on top in a tight 25-23, 25-14, 25-22 win over Dunbar.

Summer Greenwell led the Tritons with eight service aces along with 17 assists. Heather Gillions drilled nine kills while Alia Mann added six kills. Brittini Smith contributed five aces.

The Tritons (4-6) play Tuesday at Cape Coral.

Ida Baker 3, Lehigh 0: Everyone contributed toward Ida Baker's 25-7, 25-11, 25-18 victory over Lehigh.

The Bulldogs rode a combined 28 kills spread among five players - Ali Nicloy (7), Whitney Bennett (6), Kristina Kayatta (5), Louie Ross (5) and Kali Nordquist (5). Madison Kobs handed out 18 assists.

Baker (12-3) plays a tri-match Saturday at Naples Lely.

Estero 3, Island Coast 0: Estero easily handled Island Coast in a 25-8, 25-11, 25-14 victory.

Brittany Baker had three service aces to go with five assists while Kalli Roggow and Lindsey Helveston contributed three kills apiece for the Gators.

The Gators (2-11) visit Port Charlotte Monday.

Canterbury 3, Oasis 1: The Sharks managed to take one game in an otherwise uneventful 25-7, 21-25, 25-9, 25-16 loss at Canterbury.

Larra Bickelhaupt delivered four kills and Jordan Westendorf delivered four blocks to lead the Sharks (6-8), who play Monday at Evangelical Christian.
