The Woodstock Academy volleyball team is gradually getting healthier.
But when you run into a hot team like Newtown, things can still be difficult.
Senior Ellie Nunes and sophomore Liliana Bottone both returned to the lineup against the Nighthawks.
But Newtown is on a roll.
After starting the season 1-3, the Nighthawks have now won eight straight matches including a 3-0 win over the Centaurs Saturday.
The sets were close.
Newtown won the first, 25-17, and then took the next two by increasingly smaller margins, 25-20 and 25-22, to post the shutout win.
Bottone and senior Morgan Bonin led the Centaurs (8-4) with five kills and 12 digs each.
Sophie Gronski had 12 assists.
Bottone and Nunes were not available against Waterford earlier in the week and the Centaurs stumbled, 3-1, on the road.
The Centaurs won the first set, 25-23, but lost the next three to the Lancers including a 26-24 nailbiter in the fourth and final set.
Bonin led Woodstock Academy with eight kills and 17 digs while Gronski recorded 21 assists.
