NILES WINS MIDWEEK SHOWDOWN

NILES OH- Both teams have had their share of adversity this season and only one was going to come on top.  The one who came on top in the end was the Lady Red Dragons who got their third sweep of the season against the Chaney Cowgirls, winning 25-11, 25-12 and 25-14.

 

One of the biggest hitters in Kayla Sprague for the Red Dragons left the game early with a leg injury, causing a few Lady Red Dragons to step up. Mia Keeley stepped up with a few blocks in the second set and Aliania Thigpen was dangerous on her hits and spikes throughout the game.  

 

It looked like the Lady Cowgirls could have some momentum early in the third set going up 3-0, but Niles fought right back with Abbey Reed leading them.  Not only is this the Red Dragons third sweep, it’s not the first for new acting head coach and athletic director Marc Fritz who had a big celebration after the game giving brownies to his players in the big victory.  

 

After the game, YSNs Ian O’Brien caught up with coach Fritz about the game and what to expect against Hubbard, as the Lady Dragons will host the Eagles Thursday 7pm.
