Shorthanded Badgers sweep Wickliffe

BURTON—Playing without standout Delaney Tucek didn’t affect Berkshire in a 3-0 win over visiting Wickliffe on Thursday.

The Badgers cruised to wins of 25-14, 25-12 and 25-13.

“Playing without Delaney, I felt like we played a good match,” said Berkshire coach Joni Prots. “I think it was the team effort we needed tonight.”

With the win, Berkshire improved to 5-2 overall and 4-1 in the Chagrin Valley Conference Valley Division.

Wickliffe dropped to 7-2 overall and 4-1 in league play.

“Every win is important to keep us in contention and give us a chance and without Delaney, it was good to see others pick it up and play well,” Prots said of keeping within a game of league leader Cardinal. “Wickliffe played great defense today.”

Madison Chapman led the Badgers with nine kills while Jessica McKinney and Julia Kastor recorded seven and six, respectively. McKinney and Kastor both also chipped in with four service points. Mollee Chapman hammered home seven kills and Olivia Freiling led the Badgers with 13 service points and 34 assists. She also recorded two aces. Kayla Dingman led Berkshire with seven aces and also contributed with 11 points and four digs.

Elizabeth Lesco led Wickliffe with 15 digs and Isabella DeVincentis recorded four kills and a pair of blocks.
