Racer, Robson help Madison hold off Luray

Madison’s volleyball team kept things rolling Thursday night. The Mountaineers closed out Luray 3-1 with a strong fourth game from Amber Robson and Casey Racer.

With the Mountaineers trailing by four points at 19-15, junior Casey Racer came off the bench to take over at the service. She served seven-straight points, giving Madison a 23-19 lead and a big dose of much-needed momentum. The Mountaineers then held off Luray 25-23 to secure the match victory.

Robson anchored the Mountaineers with four kills in the final frame to bring her total to eight on the night.

Samantha Cubbage finished with seven kills, but the senior really shined defensively, where she came up with 21 digs.

Outside hitter Amanda Whittaker and middle Cameron Farmer combined for 10 more kills to keep the Luray block honest against Cubbage and Robson.

Jordan Aylor dished out 27 assists and managed six kills from the setter spot while Megan Clark, Madison’s libero, had 15 digs.

Since losing to Page County in their road opener, the Mountaineers have won four straight.  

Madison is now 5-1 and will travel to William Monroe on Monday at 7:30 p.m. for their second match with the Dragons.
