Volleyball, golf, cross-country roundup: Lee volleyball records sweep of Pittsfield

Posted
LEE — Lee coach John Warner had to be happy with the way his Wildcats played against Pittsfield on Wednesday night. The Wildcats bounced back from a sluggish first set to beat the visiting Generals 25-21, 25-13, 25-10.

"We had a few unforced errors" in the first set, said Warner. "[Then] it was relentless offense that came at them. We were firing on all cylinders."

Lee placed 96 percent of its serves and its offense was operating at a 94 percent rate.

Suriana Lee had 16 assists, a kill and two aces for the Wildcats (2-0, 1-0 Berkshire North), while freshman Kylie Joyce had a big night with a team-best six kills, eight aces and three digs. Bailey Thomas had five kills and three aces, while Lee libero Anna Wang had 13 digs and three aces.

For Pittsfield (2-1, 1-1), Brennah Brickle had 10 assists and four aces, Emma King had four kills and Hannah Wheeler had 11 digs.

Mount Greylock 3, Wahconah 0

DALTON — Mount Greylock (2-0, 1-0 Berkshire North) played two close sets with Wahconah and recorded a blowout in the middle set for a sweep.

Greylock won by scores of 25-23, 25-10, 25-22. Marley Buffis had seven aces and five digs for Greylock, Caroline Hadley had 10 kills, four aces and two blocks, and Lucy Shepard finished with seven kills.

For Wahconah (2-2, 1-1), Gabby Frydel had five digs, two kills and a block. T Warren had 13 digs, two kills and two aces, and Kassie Krejmas finished with four blocks.

Monument Mountain 3, Mount Everett 2

GREAT BARRINGTON — Host Monument Mountain, in the words of coach Kyle Smith, kind of lost its way in the second and third sets against Mount Everett. The Spartans did find what they were missing, and went on to win 25-12, 17-25, 13-25, 25-20, 15-13.

"We had to find ourselves again," he said.

The Spartans (2-1) did just that by winning the last two sets to lock up the victory.

Maddie Conquest had seven kills, nine assists, two aces and two digs for Monument, while Grace VanSant had 10 assists, four kills, three aces and a block.

For Everett, Alissa Rathbun had six kills, six aces and a block; Tori Seward had four aces and eight kills, and Faith Angell had four kills.

Golf

Lee 180, Mount Everett 199


LEE — Thomas Fraser did what he usually does and the Lee golf team did just enough to pick up its first win of the season.

Fraser shot a 1-over-par 36 and led the Wildcats.

The Wildcats (1-1) bounced back from a season-opening loss at Lenox on Tuesday.

Fraser birdied the sixth and the eighth holes for the Wildcats, who also got a 44 from Dylan Ely. Colby Stevens led Everett (0-2) with a 42, and he managed birdies on holes No. 6 and 7.

"Dylan Ely stepping up his play starting off with two mid-40 rounds," Lee coach Matt Carlino wrote in an email. "Our goal is 170-175 for a final score. We need our other guys to step up. The kids know we need to improve and they are working hard on it."
