Badgers split a pair at Chagrin Falls

Berkshire opened the 2018 season by splitting a pair of matches at Chagrin Falls on Saturday. The Badgers dropped a 2-0 decision to Mayfield then bounced back with a 2-0 win over the host Tigers.

Mayfield defeated the Badgers, 25-21, 25-23.

Delaney Tucek led the Badgers with seven kills and she also pitched in with four digs. Madison Chapman contributed with five kills, eight digs and four service points and Mollee Chapman recorded five kills and two service points.

“We played very up and down during the match,” said Berkshire coach Joni Prots. “We had a lead late in game one and couldn’t finish then we dug a hole in game two, going down 10-3, and had to battle to get back in it and came up short.”

The Badgers salvaged the day with a 25-23, 25-16 win over Chagrin Falls.

Tucek again led Berkshire with seven kills and also recorded three digs. Madison Chapman posted 11 service points, three kills and four aces. Olivia Freiling pitched in with 15 assists, eight digs and three service points.

“We bounced back nicely from the first match loss,” Prots said. “We need to continue to work on consistency and finishing games.”

Mayfield defeated Chagrin Falls, 25-22, 25-20, in the other head-to-head matchup.
