Walpole High School
From the beginning of set 1, Walpole was in for a fight against a strong Needham team. The two teams were within a point of each other for the majority of the set. Strong serving from #20 Wynter Conlon helped Walpole pull ahead at 20-19 and a kill by #25 Abby Rae clinched the set for Walpole. Needham started off strong in set 2 and took advantage of Walpole's unforced errors to lead for most of the set. Walpole worked to close the 7-point gap and tied it up at 19-19 but was not able to finish it off in their favor. For set 3, Walpole came out swinging and had a strong performance as a team for set 3. The set ended with a kill and ace by #12 McKenzie Rae. Walpole had the momentum in their favor for set 4 and again had a good lead on Needham. Strong defense, particularly by #7 Meghan Koenig kept Needham's strong offense at bay and the offense kept swinging and applying pressure. It was a great team win.
