Badgers hold off Blue Devils

WICKLIFFE—Berkshire got all it could handle from host Wickliffe on Thursday but the Badgers eked out a 3-0 win.

The Badgers, who improved to 5-7 overall and 2-3 in the Chagrin Valley Conference Valley Division, won the match 25-14, 27-25, 26-24.

“Today, we were able to fight through some adversity and pull out games two and three,” Berkshire coach Joni Prots said. “In the beginning of the year, those are games we would have lost. Hopefully, we are turning a corner as we head into the second half of the league season. It was a good week overall with two victories.”

Mollee Chapman led the way for the Badgers, who have won four of their last six matches. She finished with 14 kills, six assists, six service points and three digs. Delaney Tucek added seven kills, 10 aces, 17 points and four digs and Kayla Dingman contributed with seven digs, five points and two kills. Maddy Triskett added 12 assists, three digs and seven points.

Kelly Ponzani finished with seven kills for Wickliffe and Elizabeth Lesco recorded 15 digs for the Blue Devils, who dropped to 7-4, 3-3.
