Transfer student Alyssa Lane continued her conquest of a second DODDS-Europe sport Friday and Saturday by leading Aviano to a sweep at Marymount International School of Rome.

Lane, a second-team All-Europe volleyball selection, scored 34 points on Friday in a courtesy rule-shortened 43-4 victory over the Royals. In the game’s 20 minutes, Lane also had 10 rebounds, nine steals and four assists.

On Saturday, Lane had 21 points, 12 rebounds and five steals in a 52-24 victory.

In her debut last weekend, she ripped visiting Black Forest Academy for a combined 58 points and 30 rebounds in another sweep.

In other girls games of note:

Baumholder 63, Bitburg 38: On Friday at Baumholder, another sensational newcomer, Elizabeth Styles, scored 14 points and made eight steals in the Lady Bucs’ Region II victory.

Styles, a freshman, burned defending D-I champion Ramstein for 27 points in a 62-57 overtime loss at Ramstein on Tuesday.

Veronne Clark led Baumholder on Saturday with 18 points, and Katrina Alsup added 15 as the Lady Bucs improved to 1-1. Bitburg, which got 13 points from Sabrina Cavaz and 10 from Danyle Robinson, is 0-1.

Ramstein 35, Wiesbaden 31: Visiting Ramstein, unbeaten last season, improved to 2-0 behind six points and 14 rebounds from Latiya Harrison in a non-regional game.

Leandra Thomas led Wiesbaden (0-1) with 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Lakenheath 31-35, Brussels 30-33: At RAF Lakenheath, defending European D-IV champion Brussels just missed bringing down D-I Lakenheath in two Region I games.

“They have a good little team,” Lakenheath coach Janis Ready said after her team’s narrow victories. “They only brought seven girls.”

Two of those girls were all-conference stars Lizz McVicker and Caitlin Quinn, who combined for 25 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists on Friday, and 29 points on Saturday in a game that saw the Lady Brigands whittle away a 12-point deficit in the game’s final two minutes.

Jasmine Taylor of Lakenheath dominated the inside on Saturday with 11 rebounds and four blocks. Alex Hampton (14 points) and Tekeia Wallace (13 points) led the way Friday for the Lancers.

Vicenza 51-49, AOSR 22-16: At Vicenza, scoring ace Chakeira Gilbert scored 18 and 23 points, respectively, on Friday and Saturday as the Cougars opened their season with a sweep of the Region V visitors from the American Overseas School of Rome.

According to Vicenza coach Garrett Barton, Adriona Cleveland might have been his most efficient scorer, tallying 14 points on Friday with two three-pointers, and 11 on Saturday — including three three-pointers — in one quarter of play.

Würzburg 28-43, Ansbach 13-31: On Friday at Würzburg, Adrainna Archie made 15 steals to pace the Lady Wolves.

“It seemed like more,” said Ansbach coach Mick Plummer, who was marking his return to the Lady Cougars’ bench after a year’s hiatus.

On Saturday at Ansbach, Tesa Miller did the heavy lifting for Würzburg, going 7-for-9 from the floor and 3-for-4 from the line on the way to scoring 17 points.
