One streak may have come to an end during Tuesday's district match against Prestonwood Christian, but the streaks that matter most are still as solid as ever.
PCA stole the opening set from a banged up Bishop Lynch squad, putting an end to a streak of 37 straight set wins, but the top-ranked Lady Friars rallied behind solid play the rest of the night to beat the Lions 3-1 with scores of 20-25, 25-8, 25-23 and 25-16.
Bishop Lynch kept alive two bigger streaks, increasing their overall win streak to 15 and their string of consecutive district matches won to a whopping 44.
With Melanie Heigele (team-leader in assists) and Madi Tyus (team-leader in kills) nursing injuries and two others playing at less than 100 percent, sophomore Hannah Osborn stepped up with a solid performance that included 17 assists and six digs.
Junior Elizabeth Moreland shined for the second straight outing with 10 digs and seven kills, while Hannah Puddy led the attack with a team-high 12 kills.
Audrey May led the team with 20 assists, Morgan Hinds had a game-high 21 digs and Lauryn Green notched eight kills.
The Lady Friars improved to 25-7 overall and remained unbeaten in league play at 12-0.
Bishop Lynch will play three of its final four regular season matches away from home, including Thursday's meeting with Ursuline Academy at 6 p.m.
The Lady Friars' final home game will be Tuesday against Bishop Dunne, followed by consecutive road games against Trinity Christian (10/20) and Liberty Christian (10/25).
The junior varsity squad also improved to 12-0 in district play and moved to 22-7 overall with a 2-1 win over Prestonwood with scores of 25-20, 21-25 and 15-9.
Lucy Maher (17 digs), Lucy McGarry (16 assists), Isabella Springman (9 kills) and Chidera Osuagwu (3 blocks) led the team against PCA.
