Raiders sweep Bulldogs in volleyball

MIDDLETOWN – The Lapel Bulldogs invaded Shenandoah in girls’ volleyball and got a dose of the dynamic duo of junior Rachel Krathwohl and freshman Avarie Powell as the Raiders dominated in a 3-0 (29-27, 25-18, 25-23) romp.

Powell and Krathwohl combined for 24 kills in the straight sets win as they pounded the smaller Bulldogs’ squad.

Lapel (7-10) grabbed an early lead in the first set, but the Raiders (6-10) fought back before grabbing the 29-27 win. In the second and third sets they held leads fairly early on and cruised to victory.

Despite the fact that Shenandoah trailed to start each of the three sets their coach thought that the way they fought back might build some momentum for them as they continue to work on some new wrinkles.

“Any time you come in and you get challenged and you fight through some challenges, that’s a (momentum) builder,” said Raiders coach Adam Leach. “We definitely had a bunch of good challenge points tonight. We battled for some. I thought there were some we needed to get after a little bit more, but that’s a good starting point for us anytime.”

Leach said that Krathwohl embraces stepping up in big situations, and he said Powell is learning to embrace the big moments with each match.

“Especially Krathwohl, she likes to step up in big time situations. She’s the girl that’s got the experience and recognizes we need her in those situations, and she goes after it,” said Leach. “And Avarie is right there learning all those situations and building upon them. Avarie’s jumping leaps and bounds every match we play with the things she can do. She’s really building upon her game.”

He said that he’s glad that he will have all his girls with the exception of Adrianne Trennepohl (graduating senior) back next year, but that’s he’s got to focus on the rest of this season before he thinks about the future.
