The LaFayette Lady Ram­blers, who were ranked No. 5 in the Class AAAA state poll to be­gin the week, crossed the 20-win plateau with a sweep of Model and Dade County last Tues­day night in Tren­ton.

LaFayette han­dled Model, 25-18 and 28-8, be­fore dis­patch­ing the host team, 25-15 and 25-9.

The Or­ange­and-Black de­buted fresh­man Sarah Ray on Tues­day and the rookie didn’t dis­ap­point as she racked up nine to­tal kills, in­clud­ing six against the Lady Wolver­ines.

Jil­lian Mor­gan had seven kills, seven aces and four blocks, while Gra­cie Stier picked up nine kills and a pair of aces. Katie Dixon fin­ished the night with eight kills and eight digs and Emily Red­den dished out 32 to­tal as­sists to go with four kills against Model.

Other con­trib­u­tors in­cluded Bai­ley Tarvin (six digs, three aces against Model) and Michaela Hobbs (four aces ver­sus Dade County).

Two nights later, back on the road in Chatsworth, LaFayette con­tin­ued their win­ning ways as they dom­i­nated both Gilmer and North Mur­ray.

The Lady Ram­blers smoked Gilmer in a nonarea match, 25-6 and 2516, be­hind seven kills, six aces and three digs from Dixon. Stier added six kills, five digs and two aces. Ray picked up four kills and Tarvin served up four aces.

In the night­cap, LaFayette roughed up the host team, North Mur­ray, 25-6 and 25-18, as Mor­gan led the way with seven kills and a block. Red­den col­lected 17 as­sists and five aces. Dixon had four kills and seven digs, while Ray added six more kills.
