Middlesex High girls down Washington & Lee

Middlesex’s Maggie Hall spikes a shot.
It took the Middlesex High varsity volleyball team four games to defeat visiting W&L on September 10.

The Lady Chargers defeated W&L in the first game 25-15, and pulled out a narrow 25-23 victory in game two.

W&L got back into it with a 25-23 win in game three before Middlesex (4-1) shut the Lady Eagles down 25-16 in game four to win the non-district match.

“We had a lot of mental errors and our energy was a little low,” said MHS coach Jennifer Harrow. “Easy balls hit the floor with players watching.” 

Kelsey Hainley was out with an ankle injury, Harrow noted. “That threw off our rhythm a little, but they were able to pull themselves together for the win.” 

For Middlesex, Jillien Puster had 2 aces, 3 digs, 20 assists, 8 kills, 1 block ending in a point; Hayley Guess, 7 aces, 4 digs, 8 kills, 4 blocks with one ending in a point; Chelsi Blake, 1 ace, 1 dig, 12 kills, 1 block; Raquel Pierce, 2 aces, 1 dig, 1 kill; Maggie Hall, 2 aces, 4 digs, 1 kill; Chelsea Lewter, 5 digs, 1 kill, 1 assist; Caroline Davis, 1 ace, 2 digs, 9 assists, 1 kill; Ashley Williams,1 dig, 1 kill, 1 block; Ashley Lane, 10 aces, 1 dig, 4 kills; and Megan Payne, 1 dig.

The MHS varsity and JV volleyball teams hosted Essex on September 15.

MHS will visit Lancaster on Monday, September 21, and play at Rappahannock on Thursday, September 24. JV games are at 6 p.m. and are followed by varsity games at 7:30 p.m.
