Offense surges as Jays roll to sweep

By Jody Michael
There was no stopping Ray on Thursday night at home, as the Jays got rolling early and romped to a sweep, downing District 16 foe Burke County 25-2, 25-4, 25-6.
Marissa Veach churned out a team-best 13 kills, while Maari Dolan knocked down nine.
Hayden Slikker, Kelsey Perdue and Britne Viall piled up three kills apiece, while Savannah Boone and Abby Hickel each produced another two.
“I subbed as much as I could,” head coach Michelle Dolan said. “I was glad to get a few in that could try out a different couple spots.”
Allison Ziebarth played conductor for the Jays’ offense, earning herself 28 assists.
“They all did their jobs well,” Dolan said. “They served well, and they didn’t let much land when it did come back.”
In the three-set match, the Jays never trailed, scoring the first 11, nine and seven points of the respective frames.
Ray drops game vs. Watford
The Jays lost a hard-fought five-set match to the Watford City Wolves on Sept. 21.
Three Jays – Slikker, Dolan and Veach – all finished with nine kills. Ziebarth notched another double-double to her career as she finished with 21 assists and 25 digs.
The Jays visited Trenton on Tuesday, take on Stanley on Thursday at home and go to Des Lacs-Burlington for a tournament Friday and Saturday and to Divide County for a match next Tuesday.
