COLONIAL PARK >> Inconsistency proved to be a problem for Chambersburg's girls volleyball team.

The Trojans looked really good at times and not so good at other times, and it resulted in a 3-2 Mid Penn Commonwealth Division loss at the hands of Central Dauphin on Monday night.

"Honestly, we really did not get anything going consistently," Trojan coach Ty Frelin said. "It felt like we were trying to paddle up stream the whole night. In sets that we got ahead, CD was a whole different team. But when they were on top, they were solid."

After losing the first set, Chambersburg (8-3, 7-3 MPC) came back to win the second, 25-19. The teams then split the third and fourth sets before the Rams claimed the decisive fifth, 16-14.

"CD played a solid match," Frelin said. "They kept balls in play and didn't make a lot of mistakes. At first, we had trouble matching their defense. We picked up our game, but again, we couldn't keep it consistent. The last set was a nice set, but we just couldn't get over the hump at the end."

Caitlin Vrabel led the offense with 21 kills, while Lauren Diller and Cara Long contributed 13 and 10, respectively. Setter Lauren Ching had 46 assists.

Defensively, Danessa Martin racked up 32 digs, Kailey Layman had 17, Jenna Lombardozzi finished with 16 and Ching added 15.
