LINDON — It was "Nina Night" at Maeser Preparatory Academy as Maeser's sole senior, Nina Marcello, was honored in a pre-game ceremony. The Eagles from Layton Christian Academy, however, were the ones to celebrate a victory.
"It was a good win."
That was all Tom Hubbard, Layton Christian Academy's head volleyball coach, said after the Layton Christian Eagles defeated the Maeser Lions in straight sets (25-20, 25-20, 25-17). The Eagles controlled the match from the beginning on solid serving, strong defense, and an aggressive offense.
The big hitter for Layton Christian was sophomore Felicia Marshall with a team high 18 kills along with 15 digs. LCA senior Bri Nichols directed the attack tallying 29 assists. In a balanced team effort, LCA senior Jordan Czenkus contributed three kills, five service-aces, and eight digs. Vanessa Marshall chipped in 28 digs, three kills, and four service-aces.
In Region 14, LCA improved to 5-3 while Maeser fell to 3-6. LCA next hosts Merit Academy on Thursday to finish out the regular season. Maeser Prep will travel to take on Rockwell High School.
