“I thought it was pretty good overall. We did a good job mixing it up and getting everybody involved,” SSHS volleyball coach Frank Sandomenico said. “I was real happy with how our middles played. Melly (Munley) went on a nice service run in the second game to get us a lead. We did a lot of good things overall.”
Gabby Szachara led the Cougars in kills with 10. Lyndsey Anderson dished out 28 assists, while adding eight kills of her own. Munley had seven kills, seven digs and three aces. Rachel Loadholt added 14 digs.

•At Galena, Reed had a chance to sweep the Grizzlies. But after winning the first two games, the Raiders could not win a third, dropping a 22-25, 20-25, 25-18, 25-18, 15-12 decision to GHS.
“The first two games we were getting some good swings, and we still continued to take those good swings, but they started blocking us,” Reed volleyball coach Kristen Flagtvedt said.
“We couldn’t mix it up after that. We stayed in the same thing instead of trying to get their blockers on their toes. I felt in the start of the third and fourth games, we lost a lot of our intensity. They gained a lot of the momentum, and we just couldn’t get it back.”
Olivia Emerson paced the Raiders’ offense with 13 kills, while McKinley Chesley added 12 in the losing cause. Sierra Hooft knocked down nine kills.
Taylor Stefan finished with 29 assists. Katy Fitzpatrick and Moriah Maluotoga lifted 14 digs apiece.
Reed (15-8, 7-4) is back at home Thursday when it takes on Reno at 6 p.m.
