Tall order for Snider VB foes

Snider setter Hilary Harris-Hayden (the team's version of Triple-H) looks up and sees plenty of targets.

The 5-foot-4 senior has plenty of go-to options with five players on the roster at 5-10 or taller.

There are 6-1 Somer Johnson, 5-11s Leah Painter, Akilah Sims and Grace Woolsey, along with 5-10 Emily Smith.

"There are some big girls on my team," Harris-Hayden said. "I wouldn't want to block them. They are great, and they are so cooperative. With my sets, I have to push them up pretty high but they go after them that's for sure."

The height was big in a four-game win over Northrop in the SAC opener Thursday, 21-25, 25-26, 25-14, 25-14.
