The Lady Knights played and won a HUGE match on Monday against 3 time 2A Champion Scottsdale Christian Academy. The team pulled together like never before to fight for a five set victory and the limited crowd made it feel as if the bleachers were packed. An unforgettable experience for all.
Trivium’s offense was on point with Ava Norris hitting an error free 11 kills on 38 attacks and Kendyl Holt putting away 19 kills and 5 aces. Natalie Guerrero set 32 assists, hit 4 kills, and served an incredible 9 aces against a excellent serve receive. Kaili Maurice played tough on the right side putting away 7 kills.
The Lady Knights defense was integral in this match against some accomplished SCA hitters. Chyenne Caraway had 5 solid blocks on top of many stops and slow downs at the net and Maddy Hirth added 3 solid blocks, including the exciting game winner. Annika Capulla picked up dig after dig and ended up with a total of 43! Natalie (17), Kendyl (14), Bella Flickinger (11), and Brianna Sandmoen (7) definitely did their part on the back row as well.
Winning this match moves the undefeated Lady Knights into the #1 spot in the rankings. This was an incredible show of grit and determination. Congratulations, team.
