Arlington junior Chase Andersen tied the school record for match kills Thursday as the Eagles earned a five-set, Nebraska Capitol Conference consolation victory.
AHS came back from a 2-1 deficit to beat Logan View/Scribner-Snyder on the road 27-29, 25-16, 17-25, 31-29 and 15-10. Andersen played a large role, recording 24 kills which ties a school-best mark set by Lexi Taylor in 2009.
The Eagles battled to push Thursday's match to a fifth set, pulling out a 31-29 victory during the fourth. Then, in the fifth, coach Katarina Nelson's squad outscored the Raiders 5-3 down the stretch.
First, an Andersen hit went unreturned to push Arlington's lead to 11-7. Her next kill came from the back row before a Kailynn Gubbels tap found the floor for a 13-9 advantage. Gubbels added 18 kills for the game, while Claire Allen had 34 set assists.
Logan View scored the next point, but back-to-back spikes by Kali Thomsen and Andersen capped the match victory for the Eagles.
The win pushed Arlington's season record to 8-17. Due to a Syracuse cancellation, the Eagles will next compete in C1-5 Subdistrict play. The tournament is set for Oct. 25-26 at a to-be-determined location.
