Tech stays undefeated in OAL, defeats Castlemont, 3-0
The Oakland Tech Bulldogs remained undefeated through the first half of the OAL season by defeating Castlemont, 3-0 (25-6, 25-18, 25-14) on Thursday afternoon at the Dog Pound.
The Knights, who are fielding their first Volleyball team in several years, battled valiantly. After falling in the first game 25-6, Castlemont settled down to make games 2 and 3 competitive. In the third game, the score was tied 5-5 before Tech pulled away behind the solid serving and timely hitting.
The highlight of the match came midway through game 3, when McKayla Brekke made a perfect pass off of a tough Castlemont serve. Setter Elena Ramos rewarded McKayla with a great set, which she placed perfectly into the vacant back row for the kill.
Tech begins the second round of OAL play on Thursday, hosting the Oakland High Wildcats.
