Highland volleyball 3, Seton 0

With 15 kills from junior outside hitter Rylee Mayer, the Highland Hawks defeated Seton’s volleyball team 3-0 Tuesday at home in Warrenton.

In their first match at home after a six-game road stretch, the Hawks won 25-23, 25-20, 25-18 to boost their record to 5-3 despite a slow start in the first set.

“May have contributed to some distraction and several unforced errors,” Highland coach Gary Hicklin said of the home-gym atmosphere. “After a quick timeout and refocus, we rebounded.”

Sophomore middle hitter Sydney Mitchell finished with six kills and four aces, while junior libero Lyndi Thornhill led the defense.

She “continued to sweep the court and made several saves,” Hicklin said.
