A volleyball: Cambridge puts on rally cap once again

class a Deficits don't faze rally-prone Lancers

NAPLES — Cambridge fell behind early in Tuesday's region quarterfinal at Seacrest Country Day and was one point from losing the second and third sets. The Lancers didn't panic, though. They simply did what they've done all year.

Powered by four seniors playing in their third straight region tournament, Cambridge swept Seacrest 25-18, 26-24, 27-25.

"That's been typical of us all season," Lancers coach Dave Wolcott said. "We've begun to call it our Cambridge Comeback. I don't like to play that way because it gives me gray hairs."

Cambridge (17-11) trailed by five points in the first set and was behind late in the final two. The Lancers scored four straight to win Set 2 and scored the final three points of Set 3.

Olivia Yeager led Cambridge with 13 kills and four blocks. Amber Rubright had 10 kills, while Melissa Olsson added seven. Kirby Matthews served a team-high four aces.
