Dowagiac at Cassopolis

The Chieftains won their 20th match of the season with a 3-1 victory over the host Rangers Thursday night.

Dowagiac (20-13-4) defeated Cassopolis 25-13, 25-17, 24-26 and 25-17 in the non-conference match.

Maggie Weller had 10 kills, eight digs, a block and a ace for the Chieftains, who also got eight kills from both Caleigh Wimberley and Abbey Dobberstein. Wimberley also had nine digs and four aces, while Dobberstein had nine digs, six blocks and two aces.

Brooklyn Smith finished the night with 32 assists, three kills, three digs and a block. Alanah Smith had six kills and four blocks.

“We played with high intensity this evening,” said Dowagiac Coach Amber Todd. “Cass brought great energy on the court and played scrappy. Maggie Weller moved around a lot and put balls away. Abbey Dobberstein put up a solid block tonight ending the game with six total. We dropped the third set and came back strong in the fourth to finish the game.”

Dowagiac will travel to Berrien Springs for the Lakeland Conference Tournament Saturday.
