After dropping the first game of the match, Saugus Girls’ Volleyball player Kayla Tait willed Saugus to a 3-1 come-from-behind victory over Canyon on Thursday. Leading the Cents in kills (20) and in digs (21), Tait did a little bit of everything in the Cents’ win finishing the match with three aces.


“Kayla Tait is a tenacious athlete,” Saugus Volleyball Coach Zachary Ambrose said. “She wants to excel at everything she does on the court and in the classroom. Kayla currently leads the team in kills and digs.”
