Miles finished the match eight kills and a match-high 18 digs, but the win didn't come from a solo performance. Zindars tallied a total of 21 assists, Makenzie Vinson had nine kills, and Abbie Stewart also had 14 digs. But, it was Williams who perhaps flustered the Storm most.
The junior middle recorded a career high 13 blocks in the match, and the Storm couldn't find an answer for her at the net.
“She played really well and our hitters just didn't really adjust well to their blockers,” Salt Fork coach Brent Bowman said. “We’ve got to learn that when they’re blocking, once in a while tip over them, spread them out a little bit, or take some better angles. Too many times we just hit right into the block.”
Salt Fork did, however, get six kills from Emile McFadden, five from Britton Seamon, and three from Jenny Kimbro. Allie Trosper had 12 assists, and Kimbro led the team with seven digs.
Armstrong-Potomac has now won eight of its last nine matches, and now has the confidence it needs to move forward to finish out the season strong and make a postseason run.
“I’m new to area, but I assisted Joni (O’Banion) last year and she got them to the championship last year,” Armstrong-Potomac coach Candy Franzen said. “We had Bismarck last year, and losing to them, this was a huge thing for these seniors to come back in here and prove that they’re in County and they’re in the championship and they’re going to take it this time. It’s a great thing for our program, and hopefully it will just keep building from there.”
The Trojans are scheduled to take on Hoopeston Area tonight before finishing the regular season at home against Bismarck-Henning. Salt Fork will face Bismarck-Henning tonight.
