Big Comeback in 2nd Set Propels Cate to Sweep of Villanova Prep

Cate rallied from a 24-20 deficit in the second set against Villanova Prep and won 27-25 en route to a girls volleyball sweep in a Frontier League match on Thursday at Cate. The scores were 25-22, 27-25, 25-17.

The Rams rode the serving of Riley Borchart down the stretch in the second set.

"We served tough, did a good job of distributing the ball around and we did a great job of staying in system when out of system," coach Greg Novak said of the team's play. "We have four setters on the team, so if we are out of system, chances are that a setter will be dishing up the ball and finding a hitter."

Hailey Panzer was the leading hitter for Cate with 11 kills, Maya Blattberg had eight kills and Katie Brown added six.

"We had five players passing over 2.00, which contributed to the successful evening," said Novak.

The Rams (1-1 in league and on the season) play at Nordhoff on Tuesday.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
