Jessica Mattson’s 16 kills lead Rossview volleyball past Northwest in 10-AAA matchup

 

Rossview High School HawksClarksville, TN – Rossview High School’s outside hitter Jessica Mattson collected 16 kills in just three games, September 11th, as she led the Lady Hawks to a 3-0 victory over Northwest High School, by scores of 25-13, 25-23, 25-16.

Mattson’s 16 kills were more than half of the total kills recorded by Rossview (13-10, 6-2 District 10-AAA) in the match with Northwest’s blocking at the net struggling to contain the Lady Hawks outsides.

“Most of the game is played out of systems anyway in high school volleyball, so you have to put strong hitters on the outside to be able to take most of the swings,” Rossview first-year coach Krystal Weber said. “But we’re also been working on getting that middle (attack) established, so that it will help to open up the hit on the outside for us.
