Savage Gets 17 Kills as Mounties Improve to 10-0
LENOX, Mass. -- Celina Savage recorded 17 kills on a .700 hitting percentage Friday to lead the Mount Greylock volleyball team to a three-set win over Lenox.
Kelsey MacHaffie served 10 aces in the 25-14, 25-16, 25-14 win.
The victory gave Mount Greylock a 10-0 record and punched its ticket for the state championshp tournament.
Iin the third set, the Mouties led, 15-14, before MacHaffie served out the match. Four of her points came on aces and five came on Savage kills in the run.
"Mount Greylock struggled from the service line all night right up to that point in the match," Mounties coach Greg Geyer said. "Lenox scored multiple points on serve with great aces."
Sai Meesala had three of those aces for the Millionaires.
Lenox also got three kills from Hailey Armold and eight digs from Emily Barenski.
""We knew we'd be playing a skilled, senior squad of heavy hitters, but on top of that, to have our hammer, Kelsey Kirchner, sidelined with an injury, really set us back," Lenox coach Steve Laurin said.
"Our girls played their hearts out and did it with enthusiasm. They never gave up hope, and for that, they made me so proud to be their coach."
Lenox (5-4) hosts Easthampton on Monday.
