SENECA — The 25-22, 25-23 final score did not do justice to the prolonged stretches of dominance, especially at the service line, that Seneca displayed against McNamara Tuesday evening.
In the first game, the Lady Irish got five straight aces from senior outside Aspen Stuedemann — something she said she has never done in eight years of volleyball — to blow open a 6-6 deadlock. In the second, Seneca rode three-point service trips from Madison Wyss and Danielle Hauch and another two points from Chelsie McCormick to a 22-10 lead.
Of course, the final score may have done those stretches full justice had Seneca not allowed McNamara to go on a 13-3 run late in the second game. McNamara's 10th hitting error of the match ended a run of five straight points served up by Fightin' Irish outside Kylisha Hunt and sent the hosts into Thursday's 7 p.m. championship match at the Class 2A Seneca Girls Volleyball Sectional.
