On Monday night, the Lady ‘Jackets of Stevensville used a united attack to roll over Hamilton in three games and punch their ticket to the Western A volleyball divisional in Dillon. Although each game was close in the early minutes, strong play at the net by Maddalena Margini and Aliyah Anderson kept Hamilton off their game while laying down hit after hit. Hamilton pulled close in the second game behind the serving of Katelyn Dickemore. Hamilton also came out strongly in the third game and stayed right with Stevensville, even taking the lead before Margini laid down a kill and Stevensville took the lead for good.
Stevensville will play Columbia Falls at 4pm on Thursday, November 7, in Dillon.
