Carson spikers stay unbeaten

This time, the Carson High School volleyball team didn't have such a big hole to dig out of.

The Senators fell behind early in game 1, but came back to secure a four-set at South Tahoe on Friday night to improve their Northern 4A record to 7-0.

Carson defeated South Tahoe 15-11, 15-7, 7-15, 15-8.

Unlike the night before, when they fell behind by two games against Reno at home, the Senators didn't wait so long to start their comeback.

"We were behind by quite a bit in the first game, but the kids battled back to win it," Carson coach Daryl James said. "That kind of set the tone for the whole night."

The win was noteworthy in that it came on the home court of a perennial Northern 4A playoff contender.

"We played pretty well," James said. "Our defense was good and we passed a lot better than we did last night (against Reno)."

Kaitlin Leck turned in a solid all-around performance for the Senators with 18 kills, six blocks and four digs. Katie Dill had nine kills while Megan Anderson contributed five kills and five blocks, and Jennifer Saunders added five kills and four blocks. Setter Ryanne Amodei handed out 29 assists and had four digs.

Chrissy Joseph also came up with six digs and Heidi Alexander four digs, Shannon Devereaux three kills and Talia Joyce two service aces for Carson.

The Senators return home on Tuesday to play Hug.
