Barnstable girls’ volleyball sweeps Newton North, again

The nonleague tilt Friday afternoon between the Barnstable girls’ volleyball team, the defending state champion, and visiting Newton North, their opponent in that Division 1 final, had been circled on the calendar for months.

And reminiscent of the state title match in June, the unbeaten Red Raiders swept North, 3-0, and handed the Tigers (9-1) their first loss.

And if there was a single player that could steal the show in a No. 1-vs.-No. 2 matchup, it was Barnstable junior hitter Riley James.


Her 28th kill set the school’s career record of 1,035, held by Stephanie Bristol (2005-08). James finished with 30, raising her career total to 1,037.
