Sisters started the week with a sweep over the Falcons at Elmira on Tuesday, September 26, and at home two days later they recorded a sweep against Junction City (JC).
Hawley Harrer played big in the Outlaws' 25-7, 25-11, 25-16, win over the Falcons on Tuesday. Harrer led the squad with 12 kills, 10 assists, and six aces. Ashlynn Cantwell contributed seven kills, and had three serving aces. The Outlaws tallied 10 aces.
Coach Rory Rush said, "We played well as a team, and had a great serving night. We had an opportunity to change up some of our rotations, and it was nice to see consistency on the floor at all times."
Two days later, Sisters posted scores of 25-4, 25-14, and 25-21, in their quick victory over the Tigers.
Harrer sparked the team in the first set with a 14-point serving run. When Hawley stepped up to the service line, the Outlaws held a 5-2 advantage, and when she finished the Outlaws were up 19-3. Sam Silva served the next four points to make it game point. Sisters took the first set, 25-4, on a JC service error.
The second set was much the same, with serving runs from Kendra Sitz (five points), Jessie Brigham (four points), and Harrer (five points).
In the final set, the Outlaws were able to give Harrer a rest, and Cassidy Ling-Scott and Ellie Rush shared the setting duties. The Outlaws did a great job, and held off a late serving run from the Tigers' libero, as they brought the game to within three points.
Erynn Ricker and Sydney Head commented on the Lady Outlaws' play and what's ahead for the stellar squad.
"Tonight, we started strong, and played well as a team," said Ricker. "Every game we continue to grow on and off the court. I'm excited for what's to come in our next few games ahead."
Head said, "The start to league has gone really well, and we are looking forward to a strong finish. Our chemistry is growing, and we're excited for what's to come."
Harrer led the squad with 11 kills, 12 assists, and seven aces. Cantwell had nine kills, and Sam Silva added five. Erynn Ricker contributed five kills, and also had three blocks in the contest. Ling-Scott recorded six kills and six assists. The team tallied a total of 13 aces.
Rush said, "Tonight we stepped on the floor wanting to play our game from start to finish. We wanted to execute and attack the ball on offense, while maintaining our intensity throughout the match. We controlled the entire match, and were able to get everyone involved in the action."
The Outlaws were to play at Cottage Grove on Tuesday, October 3. Sisters will play at home against Sutherlin on Thursday.
