The Glenvar volleyball team remained undefeated with a win over James River Monday night in Buchanan. Glenvar is now 7-0.
The Highlanders won the first two sets, 25-15 and 28-26, before River stayed alive with a 25-21 win in the third. Glenvar then put it away with their best effort of the night, taking the fourth set 25-12.
“We played a nice fourth game,” said Glenvar coach Mark Rohrback. “We didn’t play as well as we could but James River is tough. They have some good young players and they defended really well.”
Hannah Hylton had a big night for Glenvar with 11 kills, 19 service points and nine digs. Sydney Loder had 15 blocks to go with six kills and Rhyan Harris had three kills, two aces and seven blocks.
“We had 22 blocks between Sydney and Rhyan and that was a big difference in the match,” said Rohrback.
Last week at Alleghany the Highlanders won in three, 26-24, 25-17 and 25-16. Caroline Craig had five aces among 18 serving points with no errors. Cara Butler had 12 digs and three aces and Claire Griffith had 16 kills.
Glenvar is back home tonight to host Carroll County. All regular season matches are against Three Rivers District opponents and Glenvar is currently in first place with Giles second, losing only to the Highlanders.
“We learning from our experiences every match,” said Rohrback. “This is a really strong district. Every team presents a different challenge.”
