Sierra swept visiting Franklin-Stockton 25-9, 25-0, 25-16 in non-league volleyball action Thursday at Sierra High.

East Union 3, Riverbank

The Bruins gave the Lancers all they could handle Thursday as East Union had to win the last two sets for the 25-14, 20-25, 21-25, 25-17, 15-6 win.

“We played really sluggish in the second and third sets and just didn’t have a lot of energy,” Lancers coach Rich Posz said. “With some senior leadership they picked up and found the identity in the fourth and fifth sets.

“We played those last two sets with a lot of energy and were finally aggressive on the defensive side which led to a lot more scoring opportunities.”

Jordyn Posz had 22 assists and two digs for East Union (4-1). Melissa King had 12 kills and Mariah Jeffrey five. Jeffry and Sophie Williams each had three blocks.

The Buffaloes (2-2) won the first set 25-17 before dropping the next three 23-25, 20-25, 25-27.
