The Brunswick High School girls volleyball team earned its first varsity win all-time on Saturday, downing North Yarmouth Academy in a three-set thriller.

The Dragons improved to 1-2 after a 25-17, 17-25, 22-25, 25-11, 15-10 victory over the Panthers.

“Every player contributed to the program’s first varsity victory,” said Brunswick coach Kaili Phillips, whose Dragons host Wells on Tuesday at 6 p.m.

Brunswick was led by the strong serving of junior Sophie Katz (12 aces), senior Tahlya Edgerton (two aces) and sophomore Kathleen Trapp (two aces). Junior setter Emma Dorr also had seven assists and senior middle Mackenzie Burrows had three kills.

Phillips spoke about the win. “I’d say that it’s very validating. I feel, and I hope the girls feel, like — ‘Yes. We are doing the right things. We are practicing the right way. We are on the right track.’

“The fact that every player saw playing time in this win is huge to me, too, as it shows they are flexible enough to play with different people around them and still do their individual jobs within the system. This wasn’t an easy win — we had to come back from a huge deficit in Game 3 to make the score competitive. If we hadn’t shown that mental toughness, we likely would’ve lost the match in four sets.”
