BURLINGTON — The Burlington-Edison volleyball team thrived Tuesday in an early season test against a high-powered opponent.
Katie King had 22 kills, Amey Rainaud-Hinds provided 47 assists and the Tigers downed a visiting Lynden Christian team 25-17, 20-25, 25-22, 25-20.
“They kept attacking and finding holes in the defense,” Tigers coach Tawnya Brewer said of her team. “We attacked with our serving so they wouldn’t be able to run their offense.”
Dylan Isaacson had five aces and 22 digs, Gabby MacKenzie had 12 kills and Lauryn Dykstra had nine kills for the Tigers.
Brewer said it was a true team effort, with players making contributions all over the court.
“We ran our offense as best we could because (Lynden Christian) was doubling up Katie for most of the night. It opened things up for our other hitters,” she said.
