The Cape volleyball team moved to 4-4 on the season with a disappointing 3-0 loss to the Senators of Dover.

Kali Lawson knocked down 13 kills and five digs in the contest. Megan Smith had 24 helpers in the match, while Harlee Graulich bumped 10 digs. Senior Rileigh Wilson slammed seven kills and bumped five digs.

Olivia Anyanwu led the Senators with 44 assists. Kendra Willams and Kimberly Czepukaitis had 16 and 15 kills, respectively.

“Dover came out from the gate and really applied steady pressure on us,” said Cape coach Tyler Coupe. “They were an insanely physical team with heavy arms from the middle and the pins. Set one was almost a wash for us – we were in no rhythm. Sets two and three, I was pleased with our game. We served aggressively and did our best to respond to their blows. I thought Kali had a brilliant game. It was the most engaged we’ve seen her both defensively and offensively. We need to continue with that effort and grit the rest of the season. Things aren’t going to get any easier these last few weeks, and we’ve got to get to work.”

The Cape JV squad moved to 5-3 on the season with a 2-0 win over the Dover junior varsity.

The Lady Vikings dropped to 4-5 with a 3-0 (18-25, 16-25 and 18-25) loss to Ursuline Academy Oct. 9 at Cape.

Smith had 27 assists in the match. Wilson garnered 13 kills while Harlee Graulich had 11 digs.

The JV team dropped a 0-2 loss to the Raiders.

The Vikings travel to Indian River Tuesday, Oct. 12 to face the Indians.
