Volleyball: Yerington beats Douglas in four
The Yerington volleyball team’s stellar receiving game was enough to counter Douglas’ potent attack as the Lions picked up a four-game win in a matchup between two of the top squads in Northern Nevada.
Yerington won 25-22, 15-25, 26-24, 25-20 in a match that saw the lead change hands 16 times in Minden Wednesday night.
The Lions’ stellar receiving line was able to diffuse Douglas’ potent attack enough while their own attack found its way through the Tigers’ stifling block often enough to pull away with the win.
Douglas had an outstanding night from its outside tandem of Shannon Dugan (16 kills, 12 digs, 2 blocks, one ace) and Brenna White (16 kills, eight blocks, 14 digs).
Emily Garcia led the team in blocks with 13 and Mia Townsell added 15 digs.
Garcia had six kills, Keely Latham had four, Savannah Wood had two and Erin Allison and Carly McCullough each had one.
Allison added four blocks and Latham, Wood and McCullough had three each.
Nikki Chavez had 10 digs, Allison and Hailey Sclafani each had four and Jackie Harper and Heidi Schefcik each had three.
Harper led the team with 22 assists while Sclafani had 20.
The loss was Douglas’ first of the year. They dropped to 9-1 overall.
