The Cape volleyball team started off strong and never let up Sept. 15, as the Vikings defeated Sussex Tech 25-6, 25-11 and 25-16 in a Henlopen North match in Georgetown.
Lily Joyce, Emily Cook, Tatum Friend and Kayleigh Mault each tallied four kills in the match. Megan Smith put up 21 assists and served 10 aces, while senior Harlee Graulich added 13 digs.
“I would say that we played well,” said senior Taylor Ockels. “There is always room for improvement. We tried some different lineups today and everyone got a chance to play. I think that overall, each of us benefited from the game.”
“I’m happy with how we executed tonight,” said Cape head coach Tyler Coupe. “I think set one we served consistently and aggressively and that prevented them from running an in-system offense. I was really happy to see Megan [Smith] force the ball to Tatum [Friend] and Kayleigh [Mault] in the middle; their success will impact the whole team in a positive manner. Good to see debuts from Amalia Fruchtman, Emily Cook, Montana Jones and Lily Joyce, each understanding their roles and taking advantage of the opportunity given to them.“
The Vikings host Sussex Academy Tuesday, Sept. 20, while Tech travels to Seaford.
