CLARKSON – We had high school volleyball on 107.9 The Bull Tuesday night, August 28, as Clarkson/Leigh hosted Howells-Dodge.
The Patriots won the opening set 25-22, before Howells-Dodge came back to win the next two sets 25-21 and 25-22.
Clarkson/Leigh took the game over from there, winning set four 25-12 and set five 15-2, claiming the match 3-2.
“They Stepped up their game, man. They’ve got four or five really nice hitters, a great setter. You gotta give them the props,” Howells-Dodge coach Neil VanLengen said after the game. “They stepped it up. We didn’t do anything bad, they just stepped it up.”
Clarkson/Leigh Coach Becky Schneider was happy with her team’s late game response.
“We’ve never really been a great set two team. That’s kind of our demise, kind of our weakness at this point,” Schneider said. “So we’re trying to work on that. But, you know what, we’ve conditioned a lot over the summer and that’s the payoff right there. We were just ready to go for set four and five.”
Clarkson/Leigh is 1-0 with the win, while the Jaguars are now 3-2.
