New Trier def. Niles West 25-14, 25-7   THE SKINNY   After a mildly competitive first set, New Trier scored 24 of the first 28 points in the second set, ultimately defeating Niles West 25-14, 25-7 Wednesday in Winnetka. The match took a little more than half an hour.   TURNING POINT   Niles West hung in both sets early, especially the first, when a New Trier net violation brought the Wolves within five, 13-8. Trevians junior middle Sarah Shafiq responded with her third kill of the early going, ending a long point by putting away a Taylor Tashima set to initiate a 4-0 run. Senior middle Haley Fauntleroy erased any remaining doubt as she emphatically put away an errant Wolves bump for a 21-10 first-set advantage.   THE STAR   New Trier’s Taylor Tashima said that she thought her serve had improved over the summer. Did it ever. The senior setter recorded 10 aces to go along with six kills.    BY THE NUMBERS   New Trier scored 27 of its 50 points with Isabelle or Taylor Tashima serving the ball, including a seven-point run by the sophomore and a 12-point run by her older sister in the Trevians’ dominant second set. Taylor’s run included three straight aces.   QUOTABLE   “We have a strong serving team. We talked to them about how that should be their strength and we should not be giving away easy points on errors since we know that we’ve been taking teams out of their systems with our serves.” — New Trier coach Hannah Hsieh
