High school volleyball: Benton, Airline open season with district victories

first_img“Obviously we haven’t had the same amount of time to prepare at this point in the season,” Digilormo said. “There are kinks to work out from that but it’s always nice to get a W. It’s always great to be able to play your entire team and get everybody in the game and off the bench.  Allison Watson had four kills, two blocks and two digs. Faith Berger had seven digs, four aces and two kills. While fans are expected to eventually be allowed when schools have time to meet all state and LHSAA protocols, there were none at either gym Tuesday. Taylor Walker had one kill and two digs. Macie Nance had two kills. The setup at both the Benton and Airline gyms had a different look because of COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines mandated by the state and LHSAA. The Lady Vikings visit Caddo Magnet on Thursday at 5. Airline served well with few faults. The service placements also contributed to some quick points. The Lady Vikings got contributions from throughout their lineup. Elizabeth Gatti also had a good all-around match with eight assists, one ace, three kills, one block and two digs. But despite all that, there was plenty of enthusiasm shown by players on all four teams. Teams also did not switch bench areas in between sets as is usually the case. At Benton, it looked like Parkway might push the match into a fourth set after the Lady Tigers won the first two. The third set was tight until Benton pulled away at the end. Gracyn Badiali and Erin Martin had six aces each. Badiali also had three kills and two blocks. Martin had one kill, one block and one dig. Daly Nagot led Benton in kills with six. She also had one block and two digs. Face masks were mandatory for all but the players on the court. The usual prematch and postmatch sportsmanship tradition of the players going through a line of high-fives at the net was replaced by waving from a distance. The Lady Tigers and Lady Panthers both return to action Thursday. Benton visits Loyola College Prep at 6:30, and Parkway hosts Captain Shreve at 6. The matches marked the first high school sports events in Bossier Parish since schools were closed and spring sports canceled in mid-March because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Haughton visits Ruston on Thursday at 5. At Airline, the Lady Vikings dominated their match, opening big early leads in all three sets. Benton defeated parish rival Parkway 25-13, 25-15, 25-19 at Benton. Airline downed Alexandria Senior High 25-4, 25-15, 25-15 at Airline. The Lady Tigers got some outstanding play from their outside hitters who ended many points quickly.  Ariana Wilkinson led Airline in aces with seven. She also had two kills, one block, six assists and four digs. Only 25 students and 10 “essential” adults (coaches, officials, administrators, stat persons, etc.) were allowed in the gyms. Alexandria put a little pressure on in the third set, cutting an 8-2 deficit to 10-8. But the Lady Vikings rolled from there. The third set produced some of the best rallies of the match. Haughton opened its season Wednesday with a best-of-3 sets match at Byrd. The Lady Bucs won the first set 27-25 but dropped the next two 25-20 and 25-13. “It was a really great opportunity there. Yes, we have some kinks to work out but it was a really good opportunity to develop as a team. I saw a lot of great heart there and some excellent moments.” The Benton Lady Tigers and Airline Lady Vikings won District 1, Division I matches as the volleyball season opened Tuesday evening. “I’m excited we’re playing and we keep pushing forward is my big thing,” Airline head coach Regina Digilormo said. “We’re excited to play. I think we’re excited to kick things off for sports in the parish. Hopefully it will trend in the right direction for everybody.” “The outside hitters did a fabulous job,” Benton head coach Tracey Rambin said. “I was very impressed with our passing. The passes were very good which allowed our setters to set and to run plays. We were very impressed with that. The serves were there. We played well as a team. Just very impressed with them and excited for the rest of the season.” Andie Taylor had five kills and one dig.
