Kalli McCoy delivers a kill against Sonora.

Liberty Ranch volleyball made it past Woodland Christian Tuesday in four matches winning 3-1.

Paityn Snow led the way with 15 kills, 4 aces, 1 block and 32 digs. Rachel Smith had 6 kills, 6 blocks, while Jess Lawton had 12 kills, 3 aces and 19 digs. Karlee Furtado had 40 assists, 2 blocks, 2 aces and 11 digs, and Mady Truelock had 9 kills and 1 block.

Thursday, the Lady Hawks traveled to Sonora for their second set of playoffs where they lost 17-25, 7-25 and 18-25.

Rachel Smith had 6 kills, and 2 blocks. Paityn Snow had 6 kills, 2 blocks, and 4 digs. Jess Lawton had 5 kills and 9 digs while Karlie Furtado had 14 assists and 5 digs.

Head coach Mark Snow was happy with his team that hadn’t made it past the first round of playoffs in a few years.

“I was very proud of how the girls played overall,” Snow said. “We played really well against Woodland Christian, and we were clicking on all cylinders once we got past the first set. Paityn Snow led the way with 15 kills and was dominant serving.”

Sonora was a different story, according to Snow.

“Against Sonora, we didn’t play particularly well, but I knew going into this match we were going to have to be on our A game in order to have a chance,” Snow said. “They are a very good team and have hitters in all positions. We couldn’t seem to block anything, and that didn’t bode well for our defense. These girls had a great season, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. Our four seniors, Karlee Furtado, Jess Lawton, Jessie Reich and Carolina Bagnasco, will be missed.”
