AVON — Efficient best describes Avon after its successful opening match Tuesday night against Avon Lake.

“They were very efficient and we weren’t,” Avon Lake coach Don Berkheimer said of the Eagles, who swept their Southwestern Conference rival, 25-13, 25-12, 25-19, behind a great offensive, defensive and serving effort.

“We talk about taking care of the ball,” Avon coach Julie Bendzuck said. “Passing, putting the ball in play, and I think our serving was phenomenal. I felt like when we were given the ball in the free-ball situation, we were able to terminate it. When we were serving, we were able to place the ball in a spot to keep them out of system.”

“I know my girls have the desire,” said Berkheimer. “Way too many unforced errors. I use the word efficiency. We need to be more efficient. We have good height. We have good jumpers. Our setters are doing a good job but as a team we’re not being efficient. Avon was more efficient.”
