The Zionsville boys volleyball team, ranked eighth in the state, made quick work of Hamilton Heights Monday, April 21.
The Eagles won 25-14, 25-13, 25-14 to improve to 11-5 on the season.
"We talked a lot about this match and wanted to control it from start to finish," Zionsville head coach Matthew Nance said. "That is going to part of our strategy moving forward. We want to be proactive, taking an early lead and the importance of those first 10 points. Those are important."
The Eagles dominated those early points.
In games one and three, the score was tied at 3. The Eagles then had runs of 6-0 in game one, and 9-0 in game three to grab control and never looked back.
In game two, the Eagles led 12-1 and never led by less than 8 the rest of the way.
The lopsided scores allowed the Eagles to use all of their bench and try some things on the court.
"It felt really good to have the men out there working hard and trying some new things," Nance said. "We were able to allow some people to jump serve who don't normally do that so that was nice. We have two really hard matches later this week in Carmel and Wapahani, so we look forward to using this momentum heading into those."
Scott East led the Eagles with eight kills. Wes Frye had six, while Zac Bowman and Tyley Potoczek each had four.
