CHS all business against ECHS
October 25, 2010By David Maney II of Cary High School
Chapel Hill - By the way they respectively finished within their conference, Cary, (#4 seed out of Tri-9), was the under dog to East Chapel Hill (#2 seed out of PAC-6).
On the court it was all business for CHS, who last year lost in the opening round against Enloe High School in three straight, as they were looking to not to repeat that again.
Junior Erin Harwood (12 kills, Ace) and Sophomore Leah Blackley (11 kills, 4 blocks) lead the Lady Imps attack en route to a 25-14, 25-22, 25-19; 3 game sweep of East Chapel Hill (13-11).
Cary wasted little time jumping out to a big first game lead at 8-4, prompting ECHS Head Coach Michelle Wood to call her first time-out of the game to settle her players down. Harwood had 4 kills, along with kills from Seniors Alie Endres and Kylie Howe.
Following the time-out, CHS just kept extending their lead first to 9 points, (14-5), then to 11, (18-7), which was the margin they won the first game by, 25-14.
The second game was just the opposite as the Lady Wildcats jumped out to the early advantage, 7-2, behind the play of Senior Middle Hitter Terra Ecker, who had two blocks and a kill during that run.
That make 7th year CHS head coach Philip Goodloe call for an immediate time out to settle his players down.
The time-out proved positive for Cary as they scored the next 8 out of 10 points to take a 1-point advantage at 10-9. Howe had 2 kills and an ace during that run for the Lady Imps.
From there it was more like a cat an mouse game as neither team would let the other run away with the game.
With the second game tied at 21, CHS rattled off the last 4 out of 5 points to take the win 25-22. Endres scored the last two point off of kills, including the game winner, for Cary.
The third game started out like game one, but played out like game two.
The Lady Imps jumped out to another 8-4 advantage, once again prompting ECH H.C. Wood to call for time-out.
Through out the game Cary held a 6 to 7 point seperation between themselves and the Lady Wildcats until late when they closed to within 4, 19-15, making CHS H.C. Goodloe call for a time-out.
After the time-out, the Lady Imps regained increased their seperation from E. Chapel Hill on their way to a 25-19 win and sweeping ECHS on their own court.
Cary, (14-8), next faces one of their conference foes in the Lady Cougars from Apex, #1 seed out of the Tri-9 conference, in round two of the NCHSAA state volleyball play-offs.
