Baker’s experience shows as Gators down Hobos in District 1-1A volleyball

Published: Wednesday, September 26, 2012 at 07:50 PM.

The Gators (12-2, 5-0) threatened to run away with the match early as they jumped to quick 7-2 lead in the first set and poured it on from there.

A score by Laurel Hill’s Kaylee L’ Homme temporarily broke the Gator momentum, but only for a moment.

A Katie Wickery kill opened the door for quick 4-0 run by the Gators that ended with a Hana Wadsworth kill to make the score 11-3. The rest of the set belonged to Baker as the only Hobo points came on Gator miscues.

The second set was more of the same as the Gators roared to a 5-0 lead and never allowed Laurel Hill to get closer than three points at 6-3.

Wickery continued to have a big match for the Gators with multiple service ace mixed in with some kills.

Bridget Zessin delivered a big play for Laurel Hill when she challenged Wickery at the net and came away with a big block that led to a Laurel Hill point.

The Hobos made things interesting for a little while in the third and final set as they battled to a 10-9 lead, but that’s when the talent and experience of Gators took over as Baker went on a 5-0 run to take a 14-0 lead and control of the final set.
