SINCLAIRVILLE — The Cassadaga Valley Lady Cougars swept Southwestern, 25-14, 25-10, 25-19, in a non-league girls volleyball matchup Monday.

Jenna Caskey turned in seven kills, two digs and an ace for Cassadaga Valley (6-1, 4-0). Teammate Miranda Perez added four kills, a block and an ace, while Savannah Nickerson contributed 11 assists, two kills and two access to the Lady Cougars’ winning effort.

The Lady Trojans (3-5, 1-2) were led by Angela Lunz’s nine assists, six aces, five digs and two blocks. Aubin Cotter helped Southwestern with seven digs, three kills and two blocks.

“Our first match against Southwestern went five games — to come and take three straight (in the rematch) is nice to do,” Cassadaga Valley coach Denny Wakelee said. “It’s kind of nice to see how much we improved from only a couple weeks ago. I’ve go a lot of seniors who are two- and three-year starters who are stepping up.”

The Lady Cougars host Forestville today in an important CCAA North contest.

“Forestville has only one loss in league (play), it’ll be a big match,” Wakelee said. “I think we’re ready.”
