Good "Serves And Passes" Helps Chamblee Bounce Back With 2-0 Win Over Northgate

Chamblee's Natalie Tsai (#7) goes to set up teammates against Northgate

On Tuesday, the Midtown Knights volleyball team hosted a tri-match with the Northgate Vikings and the Chamblee Bulldogs in non-region match ups for all three teams. While Chamblee and Midtown had met earlier this season with the Knights picking up the 2-0 win, Tuesday would be the first meeting between the Bulldogs and Vikings.

The Vikings would get their day started in a rematch with Midtown from last Tuesday, in which they bested Midtown 2-1 and would have a mirroring score in their favor once again. In their second match of the day with Chamblee, the Bulldogs, looking to bounce back from their 1-4 weekend action, jumped out to an early 6-1 lead in the opening set.

The Vikings looked to gather themselves and score three unanswered points to cut the Chamblee lead down to two, but good passing by the Bulldogs offensively led to good shots as they would eventually pull away to take the set 25-15. In set two, Chamblee would once again get out to a large lead, up 11-5, but the Vikings would go on a 6-1 run to get within a point of the Bulldogs, but Chamblee hitter Layla Burrell and teammate McKenna Smith would lead the Bulldogs on a rally of their own as they would pull away for the 25-14 set win, taking the match 2-0.

After the match, Chamblee head coach, Lorri Reynolds accredited the teams “serving and passing” for allowing them to get back on track. “Our passing was on and allowed our setter to really get our offense going,” Reynolds said of her girls’ performance against Northgate. Reynolds also praised Burrell for how well she played, saying the middle hitter “was really on” and once again noted how well her team passed and played throughout the match.
