HIGGANUM >> Haddam-Killingworth swept perennial Shoreline Conference volleyball champion Morgan 27-25, 25-23, and 25-23 Monday night at the H-K Fieldhouse.
It was the Huskies first regular season loss since 2007.
“It was an exciting match,” said Cougars coach Rich Langer, now in his 40th and final season. “Our hitters were very efficient tonight. Our serve-receive was strong. I think we surprised Morgan by blocking and getting touches on a lot of their hitters.”
H-K (7-0) was led by Carly Church (26 assists, 10 service points), Oivia Parmelee (nine kills and 41 assists), Lauren Brough (10 kills, four aces) and Mackenzie Hinds (nine kills).
“The kids are very confident,” said Langer, who has a career mark of 561-224. “We’ve got quite a few seniors who have worked hard for four years. They love to practice and they practice as intense as the match was today.”
Morgan fell to 5-1.
