With a chance to go 4-0 early in the Three Rivers Conference (TRC) season, Manchester’s volleyball team hosted Rochester on Tuesday evening. The Zebras, also undefeated so far in the conference season, maintained their flawless record with a three-set win, 25-19, 25-13, 25-15.

The first set was the stiffest test from the Squires on the night but still saw the Zebras lead for the large majority of the set. A string of four-straight points in the opening gave Rochester an early lead. Manchester would use a 5-0 run in the middle of the set to take a 13-12 lead but Rochester responded with seven consecutive points.

From there, the guests closed the match out in style, scoring five of the final six points to win 25-19.

Set two was the most dominant from Rochester as the Zebras scored the first seven points and 12 of the first 13. Manchester scored six-straight points to force a timeout from the guests but the rally was short-lived as Rochester scored seven straight to reestablish its commanding lead, eventually taking the set 25-13.

The final set saw more of a fight early on from the Squires as the hosts absorbed an early run to hang in and trail just 9-8. Rochester again used a string of 4-0, 4-0 and 6-1 runs across the remainder of the set to earn the match victory.

Aubree Lambert led the Squires with six kills and Mackenzie Day had four while Kendra Kline tallied 11 assists. Kyrsten Eakright had three blocks and Ali Sites had 19 digs.
