High-flying Eagles record epic volleyball win over Stanwood (slide show)

ARLINGTON – The Eagles were flying about as high as can be Tuesday night after shutting out previously unbeaten Stanwood 3-0.

Not only did Arlington knock off the fourth-ranked team in the state, it also ended their 24-game Wesco league winning streak.

Arlington did more in one night than 10 other teams did all year – winning three sets against Stanwood. This season, Stanwood had only lost two of 32 sets. The scores of the sets were close, 25-22, 26-24 and 25-20. But the Eagles were just not going to be denied, diving all over the floor for digs and setting up powerful spikes and blocks at the net. And their serves were consistently going in.

Arlington’s strong net play was led by Arianna Bilby and Reese Talbot, with 14 and 12 kills and Bilby with two blocks and Talbot with one. Julia Parra added five kills. Caroline Diemer set up the offense with 25 assists. Bilby also stood out on defense with eight digs, while Madelin Frolich led the squad with 14. The Eagles are now 9-2 and Stanwood 10-1. On Tuesday, Marysville Pilchuck got by Marysville Getchell three sets to two, and Lakewood lost to Lynden 3-1.

Arlington improved to 7-2, while M-P dropped to 2-8 as the Eagles won in three straight 25-11, 25-13 and 25-19 Oct. 11.

Arianna Bilby recorded 13 kills and nine digs to lead the Eagles. Caroline Diemer added 17 assists, eight digs, two aces and a kill. Julia Parra added eight kills.

Ayana Sabbas had eight assists and six digs, and Jenna Olson tacked on 10 digs for M-P

Also, MG fell to undefeated Stanwood 25-20, 25-10 and 25-22. Alyssa Hagar had six kills and five blocks for MG.
