RENO — Carson High’s volleyball team took over sole possession of second place with a sweep of Galena, 27-25, 25-16. 25-14 Tuesday night.
The win was Carson’s seventh straight and moved the Senators to 8-1. Manogue, Carson’s next opponent on Thursday (6 p.m.) in Carson, is undefeated.
“I’m very pleased,” Carson coach Robert Maw said. “Despite the slow start, the girls played well. We’re executing really well. The girls are getting better at it (the new offense).”
Maw thought his team might have been looking ahead to Thursday’s match-up.
“A little bit,” Maw said. “Galena has always been a hurdle for us. We got in rhythm, and we started rolling through the games once we got going.”
Juliana Anderson led Carson with nine kills and Jaycie Roberts added eight with two aces. Maddie Jergensen had six kills, while Kylie Riske had seven blocks and two kills. Setter Natalie Anderson had five kills and 14 assists and Makenzie Tucker contributed eight kills.
