Geneva stays hot in win at Chagrin Falls

CHAGRIN FALLS—Geneva continued to build momentum for the postseason with a 3-1 conference win at Chagrin Falls on Tuesday.

The Eagles used their 25-23, 22-25, 25-23, 25-19 win to improve to 17-5 overall. Geneva finished Chagrin Valley Conference play with a 12-2 mark.

“This game, we wanted to focus on getting it done on three,” said Geneva coach Annah Haeseler. “We went four with them last time so we really worked on just keeping it clean. I think our serving was more aggressive for sure and we kept it fast. We mixed it up a little bit and didn’t just rely on our outsides. We tried to use our middles more.”

Jordan Vencill led the Eagles with 19 kills and also contributed with seven digs, two blocks and two service points. Chrissy Oros finished with 11 points, four aces, 21 assists and a kill and Becca Quirk pitched in with nine points, four aces, 11 assists and two digs.

Freshman Kennedy Landrus added seven kills and two service points.

“Our game plan was to win in three,” Landrus said. “That’s our goal for every game and we just try to do our best every game and work together and talk.”

The win was the seventh straight for the Eagles, who open the postseason against Harvey on Oct. 16. Geneva swept the Red Raiders in both regular season contests.

“We’re going in a game at a time and keeping it clean and keeping our passing on point,” Haeseler said of the postseason. “We’ll just see what we get. We’re excited for it.”
