"Less me, more we."

The Boonsboro Warriors have practiced what they've preached with their team slogan this fall.

The Warriors' success continued on Monday as they swept the South Hagerstown Rebels 25-15, 25-10, 25-17 in a MVAL Antietam Conference volleyball match to improve to 7-1 (4-0).

"Last week's loss to Middletown was an eye-opener," Boonsboro coach Wendi Smith said. "The girls worked hard to rebound. It was a total team effort. Their hard work in the off-season and during practice is paying off. My team strength is that the girls play together as a team. The girls played hard and with confidence. They never gave up."

Jessie Ambrose had 15 service points, 14 assists and five aces for the Warriors, while Kasi Harris had 14 digs, 10 service points and five kills, Caroline Woodhams had 10 assists and 10 service points, Jessi Zentmeyer made six blocks and Caitlyn Selby added seven kills.


"I felt that Boonsboro played a good match," South Hagerstown coach Chuck Weaver said. "We showed up; we just didn't bring our game."

Freshman Chelsea Weaver chalked up eight service points, four digs and two kills for South Hagerstown (6-2, 0-1), while Jamie Fowler had five digs and four kills and Caitlin Nicewarner added four kills and three blocks.

The Warriors took control of the first game right from the start when Ambrose opened the match with eight consecutive points, including four aces, to build an 8-0 lead. The Rebels did not cut the lead down to less than six points for the rest of the game, due in large part to some timely kills by Selby.

Woodhams tallied eight straight points and Zentmeyer added six points in a row to help Boonsboro come back from a 5-4 deficit in the second game and take a 20-6 advantage.

The Rebels led 12-11 in the third game before the Warriors made another comeback. Harris strung together seven points to give Boonsboro a commanding 22-13 lead.

Boonsboro also swept the JV match, 25-15, 25-21.
