Summit High: Volleyball takes decisive win at Alameda

For the second straight match, the Summit High volleyball team served on point all night. And for the second straight match, the Tigers came away with a 3-0 win.

Summit topped conference foe Alameda 25-17, 25-15 and 25-11 Wednesday night on the road for the team’s second league win of the season.

“It was a good match,” SHS head coach Liz Hughes said. “Hopefully, we can build some confidence to take it to another level (with our play).”

A big part of the win, Hughes said, was the solid serving of junior Dustee Faxon and seniors Codi Seaboldt and Jeana Holman. Faxon led the team with 13 service points and five aces. Both Seaboldt and Holman chipped in four aces apiece, and Holman had 12 points off her serves in the match.

Faxon also led the Tigers with three solo blocks, while Holman led with four kills.

Hughes said Summit also received a nice boost from junior Katie Andrews, who came off the bench during the game to record two kills and help pace the Tigers to the win.

“She stepped in and did a great job for us,” Hughes said.

The win put Summit at the .500 mark in the Jeffco League with some tough matches on the horizon.

Hughes hopes that her team can elevate its play even more as it looks to take some wins away from some of the league’s better squads.

“I think that our serving is going to make a big difference in the next couple games,” the coach said. ” … We’re going to have to pick up our play for these next couple weeks, because we’re playing some good teams.”

The Tigers (3-7, 2-2) play three games next week, starting with an away match at Englewood Wednesda, which begins following the 5:30 p.m. JV game.
