The Carson High girls volleyball team didn’t have many issues with the Reed Raiders Tuesday night, sweeping the league contest – 25-13, 25-10, 25-18.
The win moves the Senators to 11-2 overall and 3-2 in Class 5A North league play.
Carson let Reed know early how the night was going to go.
Anna Turner and Dayna Myrehn pounded balls off the hardwood throughout the opening two sets.
Turner ended her night with 11 kills while Myrehn posted 10 kills of her own.
Late in the second set, Myrehn may have left a dent in the floor with the force of her kill that eventually bounced to the back wall.
“She is leading our team in kills right now. She’s awesome. Not only can she hit hard, she can spot place,” said Carson High head coach Brittany Witter. “She’s just an all-around great player, but attacks have been phenomenal for us this season.”
After Tuesday night’s win, Myrehn has tallied 100 kills for the Senators.
Another area of improvement over the early portion of the season has been in serve receive.
“We’ve been working on serve receive a lot. I think if our serve receive is solid, we are solid,” said Witter.
UP NEXT: Carson (11-2, 3-2) will be back at home Thursday night against Galena (2-9, 0-4).
Senator girls soccer loses 2-1
Carson High girls soccer had a physical first half against McQueen Tuesday night.
The Lancers came into Tuesday night’s contest with the best record in the Northern 5A and jumped out to a 2-0 lead.
Grace Turner responded with a goal for Carson before halftime.
Carson played with an extra player for the entirety of the second half after a Lancer defender received a red card after throwing a punch at a Senator player.
Ultimately, Carson couldn’t deposit the tying goal, falling 2-1.
UP NEXT: Carson (1-3-1) will have a week off before traveling to Reed (4-2-2) Tuesday, September 19.
