It rained outside on Tuesday, but it thundered inside the Lockport High School gymnasium, where the volleyball Lions aced visiting North Tonawanda to stay unbeaten in Niagara Frontier League action at 7-0.

The scores were 25-9, 25-15, 25-14 in favor of the defending NFL and Section VI large-school champions, who dominated, but did not out-hustle or embarrass head coach Luke Hodgson's simply out-matched Lumberjacks (4-3 NFL), who can hold their collective heads high.

“Noah's probably better on the outside, but he does a great job in the middle, playing bigger than he is,” coach Hodgson said. “Josh is simply a volleyball player. He knows where to be and what to do, so he makes smart decisions.”
