Highland Scots

While Highland’s streak of 185 consecutive winning sets in league volleyball matches was ended by Northmor on Tuesday, the Scots were able to keep their consecutive match streak alive — a number they boosted to 63 after defeating Danville Thursday by a 25-8, 25-14, 25-16 score.

They got 13 kills from Raina Terry in the win, while Makenna Belcher added five aces and three kills, Bridget Oder finished with three aces and Krista Walters tallied four kills.
