The AC/GC volleyball team has been on a hot-streak as of late, pushing their early season record to 4-1.
The Chargers snagged a pair of victories in a mid-week triangular at CAM High School last week, thanks to a powerful resiliency.
AC/GC bounced back from a 2-1 loss to CAM to snatch wins over Atlantic (2-0) and East Union (2-1) in Anita.
The Chargers fell behind by a set against East Union, but thanks to a high-powered attack led by freshman Chloe Largent, they fought back to win two straight sets (21-18 and 15-13). As a team, AC/GC finished with 26 kills, 11 of which were recorded by Largent. The hitter tallied 25 kills in total on the night while Olivia Laabs produced 11 kills.
AC/GC dominated the battle against Atlantic as they won the opening set 21-5 before prevailing 21-18 in a much tighter second set. The Charger service game was also on point last week, as they served up 18 aces in the three contests.
Largent leads the team with 52 kills in five matches (3.71 kills per set), which is second in the West Central Activities Conference while she’s tied with Laabs with nine aces apiece. Audrey Stowe has produced a team-best 114 assists (second in the WCAC) in addition to Jayden Carrick’s 16 blocks, just a hair in front of Savana Fuller’s 14 blocks.
The Chargers hosted a triangular Tuesday night but results were not available at press time. AC/GC is off for a week before they host Earlham Tuesday, Sept. 11 in Guthrie Center.
