MONROE — Led by their two outside hitters, the Monroe volleyball team defeated Wesco 4A North division rival Lake Stevens in a three-game sweep by scores of 25-17, 26-24 and 25-19.
According to Monroe head coach April Munoz, both teams looked rather lethargic, possibly affected by the rare Monday contest. The match was filled with numerous unforced errors and other mental mistakes.
Monroe (4-1 league, 8-1 overall) handled the added adversity better than its opponent, primarily due to the performance of Melina Seabrook. The sophomore provided 18 kills to lead the Bearcats while teammate Meagan McPhetridge added 10 kills and 12 digs.
“(Seabrook) is an amazing athlete,” Munoz said. “She has a great feel for the game and is great at adjusting at whatever comes her way.”
Further supporting the Bearcats’ dominating effort were Nicole Reyling (13 digs) and junior setter Kendal Munoz (29 assists).
“I just think that (the girls) really stuck to it,” Munoz added. “They were determined that they weren’t going to fall behind.”
Lake Stevens was led by senior Brooke Larsen with 13 kills and Jessica Leptich who had seven kills.
