as Stars sweep past Paoli

PAOLI – Bedford North Lawrence junior hitter Jenna Dufresne set a single-season school record for kills as the Stars smacked down Paoli on Monday night.

Dufresne totaled 15 kills as BNL rolled to a 25-17, 25-13, 25-13 victory over the Rams. Dufrense raised her season total for kills to 406, breaking the mark of 405 set by former teammate Alyssa Spears last season.

“I was proud of her,” BNL coach Scott Saunders said. “That was one of the goals I set for her because I felt she had the ability. So it was good to see her get that.”

“Its unbelievable,” Dufresne said. “I didn’t think I would ever live up to Alyssa. It means a lot. A lot of hard work as paid off.”

Dufresne spearheaded a potent BNL attack. The Stars totaled 42 kills, and committed only 8 hitting errors.

“Our passing was good and communication was good,” Dufresne said. “We defintiely clicked tonight.”

“We played really well,” Saunders said. “I was glad to see that. We were a pretty consistent team tonight, and that was enjoyable to watch. Our ball control was really good, and that set up the offense. We had good passing, good sets, and we got good swings on the ball.”

Maddy Cosner totaled 32 assists, Tristin Day had 10 kills and 10 digs, Hannah Dotts added 7 kills and 6 digs, Sophie Scarpellini had 5 kills, Maleah Chaney cracked 4 service aces, and Meredith Deckard had 9 digs.

BNL improved to 19-11 heading into its final home game on Thursday, when the Stars celebrate Senior Night for its 3-member graduating class and tangle with White River Valley.
