DIXON, CA (MPG) – Dixon High School student Sean Ward received a new nickname on Friday after the boy’s volleyball game.

Ward is now known as the "Spiker" after the junior outside hitter perfectly smacked the ball through the opposing defense at least a dozen times Of course, that couldn't have happened if not for the almost slow-motion set ups from his teammates.

The Rams (5-1, 2-0 Golden Empire League) defeated Woodland (0-2, 0-2) in straight sets Friday to earn their fourth victory in a row.

In the first game, Dixon won easily 25-6. The second game of the match was much more competitive as the two teams traded the lead back and forth, but the Rams ultimately prevailed 25-18. Finally, Dixon completed the sweep with a 25-8 win in the third game.

Serving aces were both Ward and senior setter Jonathan Cavello. Senior libero Demetrio Acosta had 70 digs and senior opposite hitter Kyan Fries recorded eight blocks.

The top three in kills were senior outside hitter Dylan Diaz, Fries and Ward. Cavello also led in assists with 63 and Acosta led in receptions with 58.

The Rams only loss so far came in their second game of the season against Vanden of Fairfield, losing in straight sets.

Dixon plays next on Wednesday against Mesa Verde (4-5, 1-1) at 6 P.M.
