Wednesday Recap: Meyer leads Westridge volleyball in Prep League opener

If you have any scores or stats from any local high school sporting events call them into the desk at 626-544-0992 or 0991 or scores@SGVN

Makana Meyer had 23 kills and three aces and Angelica Raymundo had 30 assists to lead Westridge High School (3-0) to a 25-10, 25-19, 25-19 sweep of Flintridge Prep in a Prep League-opening volleyball match on Wednesday at Flintridge Prep.
The Rebels’ Jade Whaley had 18 assists and Ellen Chang had seven kills.
The Tigers have won their opening three matches of the season for the first time since 2013.
“If we can stay confident, aggressive and energetic, it’ll be a good season,” Westridge coach Otto Lacayo said.
Westridge rolled through the first set, but errors in the second set kept the Rebels (1-1) within three points. The Tigers, playing without standout outside hitter Allison Martinez, committed three errors in the first set, compared to nine in the second.
“We didn’t really have the energy that was required to play at a higher level (in the second game),” Lacayo said.
Flintridge Prep fought back early in the third set, taking its first lead in the match. Courtney Johnson had six kills for a 6-5 advantage. The Rebels kept it tight because they forced the Tigers into eight errors.
“I thought that third game, (Westridge) didn’t make any changes, was our best game,” Flintridge Prep coach Sean Beattie said. “We played better defensively and took a few swings, but as a young team, all you can ask for is to progressively get better.”
But after trading points, Meyer, who had 10 kills and an ace in the final set, contributed to the Tigers’ next four points and propelled them on an 8-1 run.
“(Meyer) broke out in terms of what she’s capable of doing,” Lacayo said. “She knows what she needs to do and she’s showing it on the court. She’s been recognized. Defenses are being made to stop her now.”
