The Middlesex High varsity Lady Chargers (6-1) swept Northumberland in three games on September 4 and convincingly defeated visiting King William, also in three games, on September 6.

At Northumberland, Middlesex battled a tough Lady Indian team to wins of 25-23, 29-27, and 25-18. “We played with the most energy that I have seen at an away game from these girls,” said Lady Charger coach Brian Walton. “It was a big road win for us!”

Laura Walton had 3 aces, 4 kills, 15 assists and 3 digs. Elizabeth Ketner had 3 aces, 2 kills and 14 digs. Ariana Beverley had 5 kills, 1 dig and 4 solo blocks. Ellie McMinn served 100% and had 4 aces, 3 kills, 1 dig and 3 solo blocks. Mackenzie Bristow had 6 kills, 2 aces and 2 digs. Kayla Paulos had 7 digs. Sarah Walton had 1 kill and 2 digs.

“Our middle hitters were beasts at the net,” said Coach Walton.

King William
On September 6, Middlesex defeated visiting King William 25-19, 25-15 and 25-17. “The home crowd was electrifying,” said Coach Walton. “I haven’t heard noise in that gym like that since the 1989-90 basketball team was in there!”
