UNION TWP. | Washington Township dropped a marathon first game against Wheeler, but instead of folding, the Senators surged.

The Senators won three straight games in convincing fashion to beat the Bearcats 3-1 in a girls volleyball match Wednesday.

“I’m lucky to have a great group of seniors, and they are very smart,” Washington Township coach Kevin Labaj said. “They understood what they were doing wrong (in the opening game).

“They were doing a lot of high stuff. We went from setting high to setting quick, and they could not cover our quick stuff.”

Wheeler took the opening game 33-31. Neither team led by more than three in the game, and the Bearcats closed out the set on their sixth game point. Wheeler scored the final three points of the game to win.

Washington Township (7-1) trailed by three early in the second game, but took six of the next seven points to go ahead 14-12. The Senators never trailed again in the game, and went on to take it 25-20.

Maddy Johnson had seven of her 15 kills in the game. Caitlyn Lembke added nine assists.

Washington Township built the lead to as many as 10 in the third game and won it 25-16.

Washington Township took a 15-point lead in the fourth game. The Bearcats chipped away, but the Senators eventually pulled out the game 25-17 to claim the match. Johnson had six kills in the game, and Lembke added nine assists

Lembke finished the match with 27 assists. Lauren Kleist chipped in with 12 kills.

Jordynn Parks led the Bearcats with 11 kills. Belle Bravo totaled 22 assists.
