Newman def. Princeton, 25-20, 18-25, 25-17
Katie Bates had 25 assists, 15 digs and nine points Tuesday as the Tigers fell in a Three Rivers Conference East Division match in Sterling.
Abby Peterson had 32 digs and eight points for PHS (27-6-2, 10-2 TRC East), while Mckenzie Hecht added seven kills, five digs and 1.5 blocks.
“Super proud of my kids,” Princeton coach Andy Puck said. “Newman just out-hustled us, outplayed us, out-executed us in the first set. In the second set, we got down to fundamentals, got them out of system; serving high kind of took them out of their rhythm. The third set, we came out hot, and honestly, we took our foot off the gas. We got a little intimidated, and some kids took some plays off – and if you take plays off against good teams, you’re playing from behind, and that’s never a good recipe for success.”
Newman wrapped up the TRC East title with the victory.
