Local Roundup: Prescott volleyball team remains undefeated

Chelsea Dillion finished with 12 digs and Kate Hammon totaled 16 assists to help the Prescott High volleyball remain undefeated with a 25-7, 25-14, 25-16 win at Flagstaff High on Wednesday.

With the win, the Badgers improved to 8-0.

Prescott coach Christa Stehower credited Wednesday's win in part to a carryover from the team's 3-0 performance at a tourney hosted by Scottsdale Notre Dame Prep on Saturday.

"We saw some really tough competition over there and that showed us what we were made of," she said. "Tonight they went out there and played the way they're capable of and blew right by them."

Kenzie Phelps led the Badgers at the net with 13 kills. Nicky Lyon was close behind with 10 kills.

Prescott will play at Cottonwood Mingus today at 6 p.m.
