Littlestown 3, Delone Catholic 2

After coming close a couple times a year ago, Littlestown got over the hump and picked up a thrilling five-set victory over Y-3 rival Delone Catholic on Tuesday.

The two teams went back and forth throughout, with the Thunderbolts dropping the first set 24-26, before responding with a 28-26 win in set two. The Squirettes then retook the lead with a dominant 25-14 win in set two, but the Bolts stayed alive with a 25-18 win in set four before clinching the win with a 15-5 victory in the fifth and decisive set.

“It means a lot. It’s been quite some time since we beat Delone,” Littlestown coach Steve Staub said of the victory. “It’s nice to finally get that win. It’s important to not only the girls, but to the entire program.”

Outside hitter Makayla Orwig led the way at the net for Littlestown with 13 kills and three blocks on the night.

“She’s an imposing hitter. She’s tall, she can hit hard and she can block,” Staub said of Orwig. “She moved from the middle to the outside this year, which is probably her more natural position. And it was easy for her to make that switch because of our personnel and what some of the other girls can do as well.”

Other key contributors for the Bolts were Carli Thayer, who notched 34 assists and 15 digs, as well as Maddie Dunbar, who had 11 kills, four blocks, two digs and two aces.

“Everybody played tonight. Everybody played well,” Staub said of his team’s depth. “As well as we hit and as much as we scored, it wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for our defense. Defense is our strength this year and when you have a good defense, then you can turn that into your offense.”

Staub said the win sets a standard for the team going forward after Littlestown qualified for the district tournament a year ago.

“As a coach, you set expectations every year and there are definitely games that are close and the outcome maybe doesn’t work out and your confidence takes a hit,” he said. “It’s the hope of any coach that the team can see the potential that’s there and use it as motivation and to build that confidence and keep working hard.”
