LYNNFIELD — It was a solid season opener for the Lynnfield High volleyball team on Labor Day as they beat guest Triton by a final score of 3-0.
The Pioneers won the three sets, 25-8, 25-16 and 25-18.
“They have a strong outside hitter so our goal was to hit the ball to her so she wasn’t able to have the third hit,” explained Pioneers head coach Brent Ashley.
Ella Gizmunt led the way as the junior Cape Ann League All-Star outside hitter had 14 kills, 10 service aces and six digs.
Senior setter Sarah Foley led the team in assists with 13 as she also had five kills and five service aces.
In her varsity debut, Giuliana Guarracino had 10 kills to go with eight digs.
The Pioneers will look to go to 2-0 on Sept. 9 as they go to Pentucket for their first road match of the season.
On Sept. 13, Lynnfield welcomes Georgetown.
Both of those matches will start at 5:30 p.m.
