The Newton North girls’ volleyball team lost its first game of the season last Friday against top-ranked Barnstable, but it didn’t take long for the Tigers to get back into the swing on Tuesday in their Bay State Conference battle with Brookline.
The fourth-ranked Tigers (10-1), looking to bounce back from their 3-0 defeat on Friday, didn’t want to waste any time in their next game, and took their battle with the sixth-ranked Warriors (9-2) in just three sets on Tuesday afternoon.
Newton North took the first two sets by scores of 25-18 and 25-12, before finishing off the sweep with a 25-15 win in the third set.
North had already handed Brookline its lone loss on Sept. 11 in Brookline, and they completed the season sweep of the rival Warriors with Tuesday’s win at home.
Newton North head coach Richard Barton said that everything went perfectly for the Tigers against Brookline, and mentioned how well his team recovered from a tough stretch last week.
“Sometimes, a team has a perfect storm happen in a matchup,” Barton said. “That would be today for us. We had a very severe loss five days ago, and we had a very hard match at Wellesley on Thursday followed by the very hard match at Barnstable on Friday.
“We came in today full of energy because Brookline is our rival, and [Newton North] played like they weren’t tired. They were sharp in every aspect.”
The reemergence of junior setter Ashley Wang also helped the Tigers in their win, as she returned from a back injury that kept her off the court for 10 days. Wang contributed eight kills for the team, along with moving from her role as a setter to help out as a middle blocker in Tuesday’s game.
“She’s an important person,” Barton said. “And the players and the team have missed her.”
Barton is hoping that his team can keep up the pace that they’ve had over the last few weeks, and the Tigers will look to equal the same type of play for the rest of the year.
“We played a very outstanding match, and we have a very strong team as well,” Barton said. “It’s something that we can replicate, and we’ve been doing it on a somewhat consistent basis recently.”
