Avon closes out regular season with win; Canton hosts HMTCA Monday

Avon’s Kelli Raines and Katelyn Wankier go up to make a block during a recent match. The Falcons beat Plainville, 3-1 on Friday for their eighth win of the season.

PLAINVILLE, Nov. 6 – Kelli Raines had 15 kills and Katelyn Wanker had 14 kills to help the Avon High girls volleyball team close out the regular season with a 3-1 win over Plainville on Friday in CCC Region B action.

The Falcons finished the pandemic-shortened season with a record of 8-4 thanks to their 25-19, 25-10, 21-25 and 25-15 victory. Avon earned the No. 4 seed in the CCC Region B tournament that begins on Monday. The Falcons will be visiting top-seed Bristol Eastern (11-0) for a 6 p.m. contest.

The winning team will move to the CCC Region B final while the losing team will play in a third place contest against either Farmington (9-3) or Bristol Central (10-2).

Against Plainville (1-11), Raines had 13 digs and five serving aces while Eliza Jones, in her first game back after coming back from quarantine, had 12 kills. Due to contract tracing, students that are in close proximity to a student who has tested positive for COVID-19 also have to quarantine for two weeks to reduce the potential opportunity for the virus to spread.

Jocelyn Power had 27 assists and 18 digs for Avon while Tessa Hoffheimer had 14 assists and four aces.
