Carson High volleyball didn’t have any problems dispatching Damonte Ranch to pick up the first league win of the season Thursday.
A 25-21, 25-7, 25-14 win was constructed around Carson’s impressive serving.
Carson put together a total of 19 aces with nine of those coming in the opening set.
Riley Kolsch had a team-high six aces while Kylie Heckman and Sarah Miller each added four.
“We’re pretty consistent with our serving. Lots of aces throughout the season so far,” said Carson head coach Brittany Witter. “Serving is a huge plus.”
As of Friday morning, Kolsch was tied for third in Nevada with 40 aces this season.
Anna Turner and Dayna Myrehn were the leaders in kills with nine and eight, respectively.
“We finally got our serve receive under control,” said Witter. “Our front line is great. Once we were able to pass, it was easy to put them down.”
Turner and Miller continued to receive high praise from their coach on their play in the middle of the floor.
“My middles are phenomenal. They’re great. They can make any adjustments that are needed based on what the other team is doing for a block,” said Witter. “I’m super happy with our offense.”
UP NEXT: Carson (8-5, 1-3) has one contest scheduled next week, Tuesday at home against Reed (1-3, 1-3).
