Volleyball: Tiger spikers throttle South Tahoe

Even with one of their top players, Jessica Waggoner, sitting on the bench due to an injury, the Douglas volleyball team showed little signs of slowing down Tuesday night against South Tahoe, picking up a three-game sweep over the Vikings to improve to 22-3 overall on the year and 5-0 in league play.

The Tigers ran their win streak to six matches, and perhaps more impressive, 18 games, with the win.

Junior Melisssa Brown stepped up big in Waggoner's absence, leading the team in kills and blocks with 12 and 6 respectively and recording and ace to spark the Tigers' win.

Taryn Williams had 10 kills, three blocks and four digs for the Tigers and Megan Mitchell had 22 assists, five blocks and four digs.

Mysta Townsell provided a big spark off the bench, serving a key eight points with three aces late in the third game, and coming up with four digs.

Mary Lombino led the Tigers defensively, pulling up 11 digs and adding three service points.

Tahoe led only twice during the match, both times coming at the beginning of a game with 1-0 deficits in each. Douglas ran off a 9-4 stretch to close out the first game and stretched out an 18-4 run to close out the match in dominating fashion.

Sophomore Jourdan Burke had six kills, eight digs, seven service points, a block and an ace for the Tigers, Christine DuPuis added a kill, Allie Hughes had two blocks and an assist, Jordan Marsh had an ace and Alyssa Todd had a kill to wrap up Douglas' scoring.
