NHIAA D-II Girls' Volleyball: Gilford wins second straight championship

DERRY - Looking to avenge its early season shutout at the hands of St. Thomas of Dover and earn its second consecutive Division II championship, the Gilford girls' volleyball team came out firing and took care of business, beating the Saints, 3-0, with scores of 25-9, 27-25 and 25-20 at Pinkerton Academy on Saturday night.

The Golden Eagles (19-1) picked up their 13th volleyball title in school history thanks to solid and athletic team play across the board.

St. Thomas (19-1) nearly came back to win the second set, taking a 22-19 lead after trailing 19-14, but eventually lost.

Sophomore standout Jessa Crites was the best player on the floor the whole game, coming up with several key kills and manning the net.
