DALTON — For the second night in a row, the Wahconah volleyball team played a five-set match. And for the third time in three days, Wahconah came out on top.
The Warriors returned to their new home gym for a 3-2 win over Lenox on Saturday, putting away the Millionaires 15-8 in the final set.
That may have come as some surprise, after Lenox allowed Wahconah just 15 points in the fourth set, taking it 25-15 for the visitors to even up the night at two games a piece.
Ultimately, Wahconah won the night 25-22, 30-32, 26-24, 15-25, 15-8.
"The first three sets went back and forth with two extra-points sets including the marathon second set," wrote Wahconah coach Dave Lussier in an email. "Each team had multiple set-point opportunities. Lenox finally closed it out 32-30.
"Wahconah got the better in the third, winning 26-24 in another nail-biter."
Lussier noted the strong service play of Olivia Wehner helped the team build out an 8-0 lead in the fifth set, which was insurmountable for the Millionaires.
Wahconah improved to 12-3 on the year, getting 32 digs and six aces from Wehner, 11 assists and seven digs from Jennah Bird and 16 digs to go with three kills and two aces by Hannah Friedman.
Wahconah 3, Athol 2
ATHOL — McKenzie LaBier had 13 kills and Sasha Fyfe connected on 22 digs as Wahconah improved to 11-3 in a five-set win over Athol.
The Warriors trailed 2-0 before winning the final three sets. The set scores were 18-25, 23-25, 25-11, 25-16, 15-7.
Jennah Bird assisted on 14 points and added seven digs.
