SHINGLE SPRINGS — Just four Delta River League contests remain for the Oak Ridge High volleyball team after Monday’s match against Folsom inside Ponderosa’s gym, won in short order by the Lady Trojans 25-6, 25-16, 25-13.

The victory put Oak Ridge (5-1, 14-9) back on the winning track after the St. Francis loss and allowed co-coaches Bre Horton and Christy Bergin to play their entire 11-player roster.

Trojan 6-foot-1 middle blocker Haley Corell led the attack in the first game with four of her game-high seven kills in the set, two on blasting shots down the middle of the court. She also finished with three blocked shots, including two in the first set.

“She blocked really great in the first two games,” Horton said. “Really came out and was hitting her spots. We were really happy with that.”

Bergin noted, “She’s really aggressive.”

The Trojans jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the set behind Corell and the serving of Olivia Reid, who had three service points including an ace. Oak Ridge continued to build its lead in grabbing the win.

In the second game, Moira McVicar, Corell, Maddie DeGeorge, Elizabeth Cameron, Marissa Quilici and Reid started and finished the set on the court. That group, plus Marissa Eaves, Kimmy Tuttle and twins Erin and Kelly Kruger dug, assisted and spiked their way to a commanding 16-9 lead.

Though Folsom trimmed Oak Ridge’s lead to within four at 19-15, side outs, two kills and an ace from McVicar gave the Trojans the final six points of the game.

“We try to give the girls opportunities to play multiple positions,” Horton said. “This is a great time to give them a chance to try something else other than practice.”

Bergin added, “We just want to make sure that the girls are getting experience, especially in the back row.”

The third set saw the Bulldogs play scrappier than in the first two games, jumping out to a 3-0 lead, but the Trojans quieted the Bulldogs’ momentum, overtook them and coasted the rest of the way for the win.

Reid finished with seven kills, Delaney Chaplin and Quilici had four each. DeGeorge had 11 digs, Kelly Kruger, 10, and Reid, nine. Quilici had three blocked shots. McVicar had three aces and Cameron, Quilici and Reid had two each. McVicar had 13 assists and Cameron, 10.

Today, Oak Ridge continues league play at Sheldon.
