Northeast tops Prince of Peace

CLINTON — Northeast opened the Big East Conference volleyball season with a three-game sweep of Prince of Peace on Thursday night at Central Catholic Auditorium.

Addie Oberman had nine kills and three service aces to lead the Rebels to the 25-19, 25-16, 25-19 victory.

“(I’m) glad to get our first conference match under our belt,” Northeast coach Brenda McKone said. “We executed pretty well for the most part. More communication would be helpful, but I look for us to keep improving match after match.”

Brittany Stoll and Breanne Butler each added five kills for the Rebels, while Lindsey Schmidt made a match-high 13 assists and Alyssa Anderson was 13-for-13 serving.

Julia Isenhour’s five kills paced the Irish, while Karli Atkinson added four. Megan Mulholland had six assists, while Hunter Chapman led the way with seven digs.

The Irish drew praise from McKone.

“Prince of Peace is a young team who played hard all night and just wouldn’t go away,” she said.

The Irish host their annual tournament Saturday at Central Catholic Auditorium.
