Hall rises up for a kill vs. Our Savior (PC: Agnes Zhou)

On Friday night, in front of a thunderous Blue Fan Group, the volleyball team improved to 3-0 in PSAA play with a dominant 3-0 sweep of Knox. The Bears have not lost a league match in either Section XI or the PSAA since October 25, 2016, a string of 21 consecutive wins including 19 by way of the sweep.

The Falcons opened the match with two straight points to take an early 2-0 lead. The Bears responded with an overwhelming show of force that earned them 25 of the next 26 points, securing a dominant game one win and sending the Swanson Faithful into a frenzy.

Nadia Hall opened a 17-0 run with a kill, then Natalie Stefaniuk’s first of four aces during the run gave the Brook a 4-2 lead. From there 6 Bekah Detwiler kills, including a missile that uncorked the Blue Fam Group, kills from Hall and Ava McCormick, and a pair of aces from Elizabeth Robbins powered the Bears to a 25-3 win.

In game two, a pair of Shannuel Lamptey aces left the Brook with an early 3-0 edge. Another Robbins ace and a McCormick kill pushed the advantage to 9-3 before a quick run brought the Falcons back within 12-8. From there, the Bears outscored the visitors 13-4 over the remainder of the game, a run punctuated by a pair of Lamptey kills, 2 Leslie Kang aces, a Hall spike, and 3 Detwiler kills for the 25-12 win.

In game three, 7th-grader Mariella Mola’s consecutive aces staked the Brook to a 3-1 lead before a Hall block upped the advantage to 4-1. The Bears remained in control for the remainder of the evening thanks to 4 Detwiler kills, 3 Robbins aces, and 2 Lamptey kills as the Bears wrapped up an electric night with a 25-9 win.

The Bears are back in action on Friday night in a home match-up with Kew-Forest.
