In front of a good home crowd Thursday, Sept. 30, the volleyball team at Sedona Red Rock High School made quick work of visiting Chino Valley High School, defeating the Cougars, 3-0.

Katie Furlong led the team with 10 kills and six ace serves.Although the Cougars looked good in warm-ups, Chino Valley never stood a chance as the Scorpions took the match, 25-14, 25-13 and 25-17.

The victory over Chino Valley runs Sedona’s win streak to six, with the last loss coming against Northwest Christian High School on Sept. 7.

“We’re starting to get healthy. Arianna [Thode] and Sierra [Hatler] are back with us after missing a couple of weeks. It’s good to have them back,” longtime Sedona Head Coach John Parks said.

Sophomores Thode and Hatler give the Scorpions some much needed depth, despite not losing a match while they were gone.

Standouts for the Scorpions against Chino Valley included junior Katie Furlong, who led the team with 10 kills and six ace serves.

Senior Rachel Cook was next in line with five kills and seven ace serves while sophomore Brenna Barker led the Scorpions with 18 assists.

Senior Rachel Cook had five kills and seven ace serves.Senior Lila Rodriguez had three kills of her own and junior Chelsea Strong had five digs. As a team, Sedona collected 23 ace serves.

With the victory, the Scorpions improve their overall record to 8-1 [13-2, tournament play] overall this season and stand at No. 9 in the Arizona Interscholastic Association power point polls.

Although Tuba City High School [No. 1] and Window Rock High School [No. 2] are ranked above them, Monument Valley High School’s 3A conference defending state champions sit at No. 3 but are still the team to beat this season.

The Scorpions have a long way to go before getting themselves ranked in the top five in 3A this season, but a couple of wins this week might help their cause.
