It took a soon-to-be 4A foe to do it, but North Central’s volleyball team’s season-opening win streak came to an end in a 2-0 loss to Westwood on Tuesday night.
The Lady Knights opened the evening with a 2-1 victory over Buford as they came home from the tri-match with a 4-1 record.
Andy Johnson’t troops outlasted Buford, 25-27, 31-29 and 25-22 to improve to 4-0 on the season.
Logan Coates had a big night with 12 digs, as many assists, two aces and a kill while Madeline Pate and Rachel Robinson had match-best 19 digs each. Pate added five kills and an ace with Robinson adding an ace and an assists. Jo Phillips had 15 digs, six assists and a trio of aces for the winners who received 11 kills each from Erin Humphries and Ambi Wood. Humphries added nine digs and two aces with Wood having four digs, a block and an assist.
In the nightcap, Westwood downed NC, 25-23 and 23-11. Robinson had six digs while Wood and Pate had three kills each. Phillips, Wood, Coates and Pate each had four digs with Coates’ three assists leading the way in that category.
After the matches, Johnson said his team has work to be done on the practice court.
“We did not perform very well,” he said of the split. “We were making entirely too many unforced errors to hurt ourselves.  Hopefully, we can learn a lesson from these matches and improve on our skills so that we can have a better performance went we take the court in the future.”
