Lancers Girls’ Volleyball Bounce Back from First Loss

By Chris Paul

After losing just their first match of the season to the Bedford Bulldogs to end the month of September, the Londonderry High School Girls’ Volleyball team had a nine-day break before facing their next tough competitor.
The Lancers came back from that break to face the 12-1 Nashua North Titans and were able to up their season record up to 11-1 with a strong road win.
The LHS squad showed a bit of rust as they started their match in Nashua, dropping the first set 19-25, but then won three straight sets 25-23, 25-22 and 25-13 for the victory.
In that match, Londonderry junior Ally McGonagle had a very good night and finished with 13 kills and four digs.
Senior Lexi Small, pushed her career assists total up to 1,056 assists when she added 27 assists in the match. She also tallied four aces and two blocks.
Senior Madi Saucier had six blocks and junior Liv DeFazio got six kills.
Headed into the final two weeks of the regular season, the Lancers will play three games in each of those weeks as they prepare for the upcoming playoffs.
In that final stretch, their toughest competitors will be Hollis-Brookline and Exeter High School. Both teams have just two losses and Londonderry will face them in their final two matches of the season.
