SHINGLE SPRINGS — Oak Ridge volleyball won its first match at its home-away-from-home Monday, easily defeating an over-matched Sheldon squad in three sets, 25-5, 25-6, 25-15.

The victory improved the Lady Trojans to 2-0 in the Delta River League standings with Ponderosa up next on the schedule. Due to the gym remodel at Oak Ridge, the Trojans and Bruins share the Ponderosa court.

The smaller Huskies were no match to Oak Ridge which never made it through a full serve rotation in the opening set. Sheldon’s problems, beginning with service-receive, never mounted much of an offensive attack. The Trojans strung points together — the longest a 12-0 run behind Olivia Reid’s jump serve.

Oak Ridge went with setter Moira McVicar to start and Elizabeth Cameron followed. Kelly Krigger, Maddie DeGeorge and Erin Krigger each served as liberos.

“We were able to put in a variety of players and use different lineups,” Trojan coach Bre Horton said. “Work on stuff we needed to work on, stay focused, work as a team and respect our opponent. We let down our focus in the third set and you see what happens.”

Set No. 2 mirrored the first. Delaney Chaplin, Marissa Quilici and Cameron spent time on serve and Sheldon couldn’t stop the hitting of Reid, Marissa Eaves and Hayley Corell.

Troy’s 13-1 run broke a 5-5 tie in the third set. Though the Huskies had their best scoring game Oak Ridge was never in jeopardy of losing its sweep.
