September 22, 2022
The Noxon Red Devils hosted a pair of home volleyball matches last week, welcoming Alberton on Thursday and Charlo on Saturday.
Noxon kicked the weekend of competition off with a win against Alberton on Thursday. The Red Devils defeated the Panthers in four sets. Against Charlo, the Red Devils lost in three sets, 25-22, 25-15, 25-17, but put up a valiant effort in the conference matchup. In the first set, Noxon led nearly the entire set, up 17-12 before Charlo came back to tie up the match and take the eventual win. Noxon again led early in the second set before Charlo tied it at 9 apiece and expanded their lead to the eventual win. The Red Devils made some good runs for points in the third set, but fell to the Vikings.
Junior Mia Vogel led the Red Devils against Charlo with six aces, five kills and eight digs, senior Emily Brown had one ace, four kills, three blocks and two digs, and sophomore Seanna Richter added two aces, one kill, nine set assists, one block and five digs. Abby Yoder, an eighth-grader, served up four aces and added five digs against Charlo, and Maygan Swanson had three aces, one kill, two blocks and two digs.
This week, the Red Devils will be on the road as they were set to travel to Two Eagle River on Tuesday (results were not available at press time) and will compete in the Mission Shootout in Ronan on Saturday.
The Savage Heat took the Superior Bobcats to five sets last Thursday as Hot Springs added a home win to their 2022 record. Hot Springs alternated set wins with Superior, going 25-20, 19-25, 25-15, 20-25 and 11-15 on Thursday.
