Fillies serve up three-set win on Senior Night

On a night designed to honor three seniors, the future of Olton’s volleyball program was on display as the Fillies took down Wildorado in three sets Tuesday night — 25-23, 25-23, 25-6.

And it was a night seniors Mackenzie Oliverez, Leslie Pedroza and Grace Carson will remember as all three put on outstanding performances in their final game at Olton Memorial Gymnasium.

“Grace had a great game, Mackenzie did a great job at the net, and Leslie is my most solid player,” said Coach Crista Gray.

Appropriately, it was a hard hit by Oliverez at the net that put away the third and final set, but it was freshman Celestte Ramirez who put the Fillies in the position to easily win the set and match. She opened the third set with 11 straight serves for points. Oliverez followed that with six straight serves to put the score at 17-2. Then it was a team effort that included the fans in the stands the rest of the way as the Fillies kept a promise they made to Gray before the game.

Mustangs looking for win at Post

It’s one thing to open district play against the No. 5 team in the state, and quite another to have to play the next week against the team that knocked that top-rated team out of the playoffs last year.

Yet, that’s the luck of the draw for the Olton Mustangs as they come off a 49-6 loss to No. 5 New Deal to head south to play at Post Friday night.
