PREP VOLLEYBALL: On to the semis

Northridge, Central win quarterfinal matches

(Continued)

Goshen played a defense that is designed to take away tips.

“Some people call it a tip defense,” West said. “We talked about changing defenses, but Northridge is so athletic they hit right over our blockers. Their hitters find the spots and that makes them hard to defend.”

Goshen finishes 9-24 in West’s first season at the helm.

“We need to work on being more of a team,” the coach said. “We have girls that are athletic.”

Central got a strong performance from senior Azariah Stahl as the Purdue recruit accumulated 22 kills and three blocks in the win over Concord.

“I liked the way we kept fighting back and the way we stayed focused,” Blue Blazer coach Yolanda Stahl said. “We kept reminding them to stay focused on what we needed to do. There were times we were a little too tight and we made some focus errors.”

Central defeated Concord in four games during the regular season.

“We played ten times better tonight than when we played them during the season,” Concord coach Laurie Rhoades said. “But we still had some untimely errors that put us in a hole.”

Concord finishes 21-13.

“We are still a pretty young team with two seniors and only one of them played tonight,” the coach said. “We are looking for good things in the next couple of years.

“We went through a lot of adversity this season. We lost some players and we had some injuries. The first time we played Central (sophomore) Frankie Rodino and (junior) Gabby Staggs didn’t play. The girls have all been true to each other and we have stayed like a family. It’s sad to end on a loss, but that always happens unless you win a state championship.”
