Warriors sweep at Knappa

Warrenton's Katelynn Blodgett, No. 3, spikes the ball over the net during a volleyball game last year against Knappa at Warrenton High School.

KNAPPA — Warrenton senior Asia Lambert had 17 digs and was 12-for-14 passing, to help the Warriors to a three-game win at Knappa Wednesday, 25-16, 25-16, 25-21, in a nonleague volleyball match.

The Warriors missed just one serve all night, with Katelynn Blodgett (16-for-16) leading the way.

Sierra Lyons was 14-for-14, and Michelle Arney went 12-for-12 from the service line.

Senior Landree Miethe led the offensive attack, with eight kills in 20 attacks. Morgan Blodgett added five kills for Warrenton.

“Knappa’s game is to just get it over the net, and let you make the mistakes,” said Warrenton coach Jim Hackwith. “And we ended up playing their game, which is not exactly what we wanted to do, but it was good for us.

“We served much better than we did Saturday (in the Warrenton Tournament), and we played well defensively.”

The Warriors are off until Sept. 9, when they begin league play at De La Salle.

For the Lady Loggers, Paris Vanderburg had seven kills and two blocks, Kaitlyn Truax served up four aces, and Kaitlyn Landwehr added nine assists and two blocks. Jaden Miethe finished with seven digs.

“I was very happy with the way we played tonight,” said Knappa coach Jeff Kaul. “This was our first full match against a strong hitting and great defensive team. We had some great rallies and I was very excited to see more hitting from our front row.”

As for Knappa’s serving, “Our serving was not where it needs to be yet, as we gave the Warrior 13 free points on missed serves,” Kaul said. “Our confidence in our passing and hitting will continue to grow, and as it does we will become a very tough team to beat.”
