The fourth annual All-Star Spikefest, hosted by the Washington County Juniors Volleyball Club, lived up to its name Saturday night, as the top high school seniors in the county put on a show at South Hagerstown.

There were plenty of powerful kills, athletic sets and spectacular digs as Kim's Krushers, coached by Clear Spring's Kim Malphurs, went toe to toe with the Dream Weavers, coached by South's Chuck Weaver.

In the end, the Krushers won 4 of 5 games played, 25-17, 25-22, 24-26, 25-18, 15-9.

"We had a lot of good rallies, and its always good to see an outstanding attack, but the defense was very good and I think everybody enjoyed it and had fun," said Weaver, the WACO Juniors president. "There were a couple private school girls I'd never seen before, so it was fun for me to be able to watch them."

"I thought it was amazing, seeing the girls play during the season, to see them come out tonight and I just think they were on," Malphurs said. "There were no attitudes, they just came out and played."


Colleen Black had 22 kills and five blocks, and Alison Griffith added 16 kills and 23 digs to lead the Krushers.
